In Summer 2020, we are organizing "Peru: Accountability and Global Justice." Dr. Gabriela Tarazona-Sevillano directs this study abroad opportunity. This on-site course is designed for students interested in human rights issues and the accountability of those who violated these rights protected by international law and domestic law. It addresses the question of accountability of former Heads of State regarding human rights violations that occurred during their time in office. We will be focusing on the international legal regime and cross-cultural/political issues. Peru has been at the center of these processes of accountability, and our three-week journey in Peru will allow students to get acquainted with important cases. Participants will also go on an excursion to Cusco (center of the Inca Empire -1200c) and to Machu Picchu (the lost city of the Incas) enjoying the multicultural experience of being there with people from all over the world. Lectures and discussions will take place at and in collaboration with a university in Lima. Our partner university is located in Miraflores, a beautiful and safe part of Lima and our accommodations will be within walking distance. We will visit the Museum of Peruvian History, the Museum of Gold, enjoy city tours in Lima and Cusco and a guided visit to Machu Picchu.
The application deadline is February 1, 2020.
