This course will provide you with the latest academic analysis of the theory and practice of human rights advocacy. The course considers tools of advocacy: lobbying to change laws and policies, litigation and human rights documentation, social media campaigns, and street protests and demonstrations. Participants will learn how to select effective advocacy tools and targets, the usefulness (or otherwise) of framing a problem as a human rights issue, the identification of key objectives for change, and the tricky business of measuring success.
