The heart of the idea of human rights … is this: Every human being, simply as a human being, is sacred (is “inviolable”, has “inherent dignity”, is “an end in himself” [sic], or the like); therefore, certain choices should be made and certain other choices rejected; in particular, certain things ought not to be done to any human being and certain things ought to be done for every human being.
– Michael J. Perry, The Idea of Human Rights: Four Inquiries. New York and Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1998, page 43.
Discuss the above quote from Perry in light of the ongoing debate between universalism and cultural relativism in the contemporary human rights discourse. Use one reasonably contemporary example of a human rights abuse that is affected by this debate to illustrate your discussion. Indicate which international human rights instruments are relevant to it and which mechanisms are available to address it. How effective do you consider the mechanisms you refer to are in this situation?
marking criterion:
Substance – your knowledge of the subject matter of the course and other relevant material will be assessed.
Research – you will do independent research (i.e. beyond the course materials) which should be evident in the text and references. For the research essay, a reference list or bibliography, which will not count towards the word limit, must be included. A good or outstanding assignment or essay will refer to some books and articles that go beyond the course materials.
Structure – the assignment/research essay must follow a logical structure. You must answer the questions posed by your assignment or essay topic. Your work should have an introduction in which the approach to the assignment/case study topic is set out and in which key parts of the assignment are flagged for the reader. Each sentence, paragraph and section of the essay must lead logically to the next. Please use subheadings to guide the reader.
Spelling and grammar – the assignment should demonstrate writing and literacy skills of a high standard. To learn what the standard is, you should read the set readings and other recommended texts. Typographical errors, spelling mistakes and the like are distracting and may lead to a lower mark.
Academic honesty – please see the material on plagiarism which appears elsewhere in this Course outline. While you may discuss generally the issues raised by the problem and research strategies with your classmates, you may not plan the structure or contents of your assignment with another person and your written assignment must represent your own work, and be properly referenced where you draw on the work of others. If you have any doubts about what is or is not appropriate, please consult me.
Compliance with formal requirements set out above. Failure to comply with formatting requirements may lead to the deduction of marks. Note also that normal Faculty policies in relation to excessive length and late submission will apply.
There is no prescribed referencing system for the course. Students may use the referencing system they are familiar with. However, they must use it consistently and use it to cite all their sources.
