This subject brings together a range of different approaches to critically understanding law, rights and social justice. The subject focuses on the ways in which both domestic and international laws can promote, hinder or violate fundamental freedoms and rights. The subject begins by examining the philosophy and practice of rights within domestic and international law, and then considers a range of different but interrelated issues, including: Indigenous rights and self determination; women in western and non-western worlds; reproductive rights; the rights of the child; poverty and homelessness; asylum seekers and refugees; counter-terrorism and torture; armed conflict, genocide and transitional justice; and environmental and animal rights.
