International Human Rights and Non-State Actors | L47xx
Human rights instruments are signed by governments but implemented by "every individual and every organ of society." This language, written into the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, has grown increasingly important over time. Multinational corporations, international financial institutions, and even armed insurgent groups have human rights responsibilities. This course explores how the responsibilities of these non-state actors have evolved as corporate wealth and impact has expanded across the globe.
