This course has definite ties to the case proving illegality of the sanctions on Iraq. -Rania ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Wed, 02 Aug 2000 08:19:01 -1000 From: George Kent <email@example.com> ============================================================ Announcing a new on-line graduate course . . . Political Science 675(c) Topics in Public Policy: Nutrition Rights The purpose of POLS 675(a) Topics in Public Policy: Nutrition Rights is to study the working of human rights systems through close examination of the human right to food and nutrition. The course syllabus is available at http://www2.hawaii.edu/~kent/pols675cFall2000Syllabus.doc Over the last half-centry, human rights advocates have emphasized civil and political rights, but work on economic and social rights is now developing rapidly. The human right to adequate food and nutrition, in particular, is being clarified under an initiative led by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and many agencies at both national and global levels are recognizing the right and working to assure its realization. This course examines the meaning and the application of the human right to adequate food and nutrition. The course will be offered by Professor George Kent of the Department of Political Science at the University of Hawai’i. It will draw heavily on the Internet-based tutorial he has prepared on Nutrition Rights: the Human Right to Adequate Food and Nutrition. The tutorial may be viewed at http://www2.hawaii.edu/~kent/tutorial2000/titlepage.htm Each participant is asked to undertake a term project in which he or she formulates suggestions for improved policy or law with regard to the human right to food and nutrition in a specific context. This is to be an on-line course, accessible via the Internet to anyone in the world. This means that it can include participants not only from, but also in, several different countries. Individuals who are not registered as full-time students at the University of Hawai’i at Mânoa can register for this course through the university’s Outreach College, accessible through its website at http://www.aln.hawaii.edu The tuition and registration fee for this three-unit graduate course add up to $519 for both Hawai’i residents and non-residents. Full-time students at the University of Hawai’i at Mânoa may register for the course by following their usual registration procedures. Additional information about this course may be obtained from Professor Kent at firstname.lastname@example.org Feel free to forward this announcement to others. -- ----------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a discussion list run by the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq For removal from list, email email@example.com Full details of CASI's various lists can be found on the CASI website: http://welcome.to/casi
