The course focuses on human rights from a sociological perspective. How does the sociological viewpoint of human rights differ from e.g. philosophy, history and political science? And how can sociology grasp the concept of human rights in its own theoretical language?

Attempting to (partially) answer these questions, the course will build on foundational aspects such as 'definitions' of human rights and human rights instruments and will further explore ways in which sociological concepts and theories can observe, describe and explain human rights.
