You have the choice of writing a response paper on the following prompt: Focus on Universal
Declaration of Human Rights and the relevant sections of the UN Charter. Make an argument
about how they are similar and how they are in conflict, and what are the consequences of the
conflict and the way that human rights are addressed by the international community.
This writing assignments should have an
argument put forward by you. Ideally,
they should address a “why” question and have a thesis statement (an argument
that answers why something happened for example). A paper that merely summarizes the
materials will not be graded.
Maximum length of 3 pages,double spaced
in 12 point type, New Times Roman font, minimum margins of 1 inch on all sides. Additional sources must be explicitly stated.
