Human Rights

The HUMAN RIGHTS option examines the history, development, enforcement, and violations of concepts of the basic rights of humanity.  Whether through questions of torture, freedom of conscience, trafficking of women and children, agreements about prisoners of war, human rights constantly need redefining and rethinking if they are to be broad enough to cover everyone on our planet and specific enough to have a real effect on human behavior.
