Human Rights and Migrations
International Field School "Divided in Diversity"
University of Tübingen, International & European Studies

with Allison Davis-White Eyes

This course is an introduction to the history and trajectory of human rights, which have always also been understood as minority rights. Both the Genocide Convention and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are answers to two World Wars and the Holocaust. One of the critical discourses of that time was the examination of the status of refugees, as theorized by Hannah Arendt. More contemporary discussions of the topic by Giorgio Agamben and Nancy Fraser point to the necessity of understanding the human dimensions of displacement and the status of refugees, which oftentimes pose a challenge to the definitions of national identity. This will be discussed in the context of recent migrations within and towards Europe.
