These include: an introductory case study on human rights, extraordinary renditions and extraterritorialityextensive coverage of regional human rights systems and NGOs terrorism and human rightshuman rights litigation in U.S. courts corporations and human rightsrefugee lawthe right to healthgay and lesbian rightsthe right to property.
