ILO L212: Nationalism, Self-determination and Minority Rights

Course Description

This seminar explores the evolution of the concepts of self-determination and minority rights from the nineteenth century to the present. The focus is on changing legal norms, including interpretation of the principle of self-determination by the League of Nations and United Nations; protection of the rights of ethnic, religious, and linguistic minorities; and the articulation of the rights of indigenous peoples. The seminar requires a substantial research paper that analyzes a contemporary situation in which these issues are significant. Open to students who have completed L200, L210 or equivalent.
