2. “In addition, students will write a 20-22 page research paper on a question or issue drawn from the syllabus and class discussions. The paper should incorporate at least some of the theories, concepts and debates covered in the course, but the student may choose the specific topic.”
Therefore, the paper needs to use one of the theories and readings provided on the syllabus.
3. This is the course description. The paper has to do with armed conflict examined through International Human Rights Law. The course description is as below:
This seminar will cover various issues, debates, and concepts in the international law of armed conflict (known as international humanitarian law), particularly as it relates to the protection of non-combatants. In doing so, we will examine how international humanitarian law and human rights law intersect. Both sets of legal norms are designed to protect the lives, well-being, and dignity of individuals. However, the condition of armed conflict provides a much wider set of options for governments, military organizations, and individuals to engage in violent, deadly action against others, including killing, forcibly detaining, and destroying the property of those designated as combatants. At the same time, the means of waging war are not unlimited but rather are tightly regulated by both treaty and customary law. This course will examine how these regulations operate in theory and practice, focusing on the principles of distinction, proportionality, and military necessity.
