3rd Summer School

Human Rights – A Recurrent History

Istanbul 12 - 26 June 2015

Set in Istanbul, this summer course offers students from the Nordic countries and Turkey a unique possibility to deepen their knowledge of the concept of human rights and its application together with an international group of scholars and practitioners. Our aim is to go beyond the Eurocentric narrative of how human rights have evolved by investigating legal, political and cultural transformations in both Europe and the Ottoman Empire/Turkey. Students acquire an in-depth understanding of the ways in which human rights have been understood, institutionalized, and contested, with special reference to the Nordic countries and Turkey. How historical injustices have become matters of contemporary human rights and how cultural heritage is conceived of as a human right will also be investigated.
