Inside International Human Rights Bodies. How they work and how they think.
The seminar will provide a comparative analysis of the procedures of the European Court of Human Rights, the American Court of Human Rights and some of the United Nations treaty bodies in order to understand their role in the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms at the international level.
