Аннотация

“Political rights in comparative perspective” is an advanced master’s course which explores the nature and extent of two groups or basic rights – personal and political – in various constitutional jurisdictions. It looks into the approaches developed by the constitutional courts of both young and mature democracies in regards to the protection of basic personal and political rights. It develops students’ analytical thinking by engaging them in a comparative study of cases of high controversy related to such rights as human dignity, equality, right to respect for private and family life, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech and assembly and freedom of association. The course enables students to compare and reflect upon the courts’ reasoning and generate compelling arguments for the benefit of each side of the dispute. The course is designed particularly for students interested in performing comparative research and/or fancying a career in constitutional and human rights litigation. The course is conducted in English.

  • The course aims at enabling the students to analyze and evaluate legal texts (court decisions, legislative acts, international treaties) related to personal and political rights. Specific goals of the course are: • to put personal and political rights into a broad legal, political, historical and comparative context and identify their role in a contemporary democratic society; • to examine major doctrines and techniques related to striking a balance between personal and political rights and other legitimate interests; • to compare and reflect upon alternative approaches of constitutional courts and the European Court of Human Rights to defining the scope of a number of personal and political rights; • to enable the students to substantiate arguments favouring and opposing specific restrictions of personal and political rights.
