PSC 336 - Comparative & International Courts (3 cr.)


When can courts stand up to authoritarian leaders, and when do they instead become complicit? What can international courts do to promote human rights? This course addresses these and other questions by examining court systems outside the US, including international courts. Topics will include judicial independence, the relationship between courts and other branches of government under both democratic and authoritarian regimes, and human rights advocacy, among others.
