Translating International Human Rights Law: Housing Issues in East Jerusalem
This seminar will consider international and comparative law issues surrounding the construction and demolition of housing in East Jerusalem. In addition to a weekly class session, students in the seminar will spend their spring break in Israel assessing the legal issues in context, meeting with various interested stakeholders, and deepening their understanding through hands-on experience outside of the classroom. The students will also be responsible for preparing a substantial collaborative paper by the end of the semester. Grades will be based on class participation, extent of preparation for the trip, individual presentations, and contributions to the paper.
