Purpose of the Assignment:
The struggle for human rights is multifaceted and not just limited to
the area of law. Rather, law, as an
outcome and reflection of the relations of power, is but one of many arenas in
which the struggle for human rights and human dignity play out. But in the end, law is most important because
it codifies and legitimize standing relations of power. And to the extent that people view the law as
just (and there is a difference between law and justice), they obey it and view
the power that it represents as legitimate.
As you research your topic, I
want you to look into the multiple arenas of struggle that people fought in as
they struggled to assert the human right(s) that are the focus of your paper. Detailed instructions will be in the uploaded file. Thanks!
