This website offers syllabi offered at universities in the U.S. and in
other countries. The website is designed for instructors anywhere in the
world to assist in their preparations for teaching a human rights course,
and for scanning other approaches to human rights syllabi.
The syllabi are under various headings, such as: The Child, Disability,
Health and Medicine, Indigenous Peoples, Latin America, Law, Literature,
Science and Technology, the United States, Nontraditional One-Day
Courses, and Summer Courses, to name a few. The syllabi are put up on the
website exactly as the instructors send them to us. The syllabi usually
include bibliographies on the subject area.
The website is under the aegis of the Institute of International Studies,
University of California at Berkeley, and Amnesty International USA Human
Rights Educators Network.
