Worst of the Worst: Human Rights Abuses by States—Violence, and Intervention

The lesson addresses violence by states and intervention by the International community. Would be ideal for a class with students who have not done much work in human rights—such as an intro to human rights course, or an intro to a module on human rights. This assignment was originally for an intro to human rights class (approximately 30 students), and was given towards the start of the semester to familiarize students with human rights abuses and important events relating to state violence, and international intervention attempts to stop the violence, in the 20th century.
