CHP 522 Health and Human Rights Research Methods 3.0 Credits
This seminar focuses on the application of human rights norms and tools to public health and particular challenges within public health. Building upon human rights frameworks, we will discuss current debates about the usefulness of a “human rights approach” to health, the methods and ethics of health-related human rights research, and case studies of human rights investigations and advocacy. The case studies are intended to examine how human rights abuses, including violations of economic and social rights and civil and political rights, can be understood as determinants of health.
