Can the protection of human rights justify the intervening of one state on the territory of other states


Find 4 newspaper stories about your topic from the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor (good for the Middle East), the Guardian or other major newspaper of record. Find 3 magazine articles on your topic published in serious journalistic (or analytic) magazines (i.e. Time, The Economist, Foreign Affairs, The New Yorker, The Nation, The Atlantic, Mother Jones, Rolling Stone etc.). Find 3 academic journal articles relevant to your topic (note: law reviews are good for this); Use Google and Google Scholar and Lexis / Nexis and other search resource Annotated Bibliography: Be sure to attach your annotated bibliography to the back of your essay. You can use APA or MLA style for your citations. But I expect you to be consistent in which style you use. Questions to think about: (use this as a rough outline) What is the current significance of your topic? What are the broader implications for individual freedom, human development, multi-culturalism and democracy? What are the offending laws or government actions? Do these violations of human rights also involve non-governmental private actors like corporations or organized crime? What articles of the U.N. International Declaration of Human Rights are being violated? Are the rights in question individual, collective or both? Be sure to fully elaborate this. What parts of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are being violated? Is there a dispute that violations actually happened? What evidence has been presented (reports, investigations etc.) that these violations actually happened? How is the offending party challenging the evidence? Which organization, or organizations, first drew attention to the human rights violations that touch on your topic? How did they go about doing this? What was their strategy; what were their tactics? Were there demonstrations, civil disobedience, violent confrontations? How did the media (including social media) respond? And what were the media strategies of the advocacy groups who were drawing attention to the human rights violations pertaining to your topic? How did other human rights groups respond? Did the groups relevant to your topic form a coalition of common interest? Or did they line up against each other? How did Congress respond? Did they pass legislation that offered a solution to the problem of the violations? Or did Congress do nothing? Or did they pass a law that created the human rights problem in the first place? Does the pressure, on the two parties, to win elections have anything to do with this? How did the President and the White House respond? What regulations did the president issue to ease or worsen the problem? What directions did the president issue to the relevant agencies under his control as “chief executive”? Did they make the problem better or worse? What is the stated policy of the White House towards the particular human rights problem that you are writing about? Is the stated position a genuine one; or that is contradicted by the President’s actions? How did the courts respond? Did they uphold or overturn the actions of the President and Congress in their rulings? Where does public opinion stand on the human rights issue that you are researching? Is the public becoming more sympathetic to the people affected by the human rights violations that you are writing about? Or is the public becoming more hostile to the affected people/groups? How do you account for this? What do you think is happening and why?   So; do you think the strategy of advocacy for these aggrieved parties is a good one? Is it working? What are some changes in tactics, or strategy, that you would recommend improving on the power of the advocacy so that the human rights that have been denied could be established or restored? Your final paper; should run at least 8 full pages (not including the bibliography and cover page), double spaced, with 1 inch margins and 12 point font size.
