AAS 3640 - Comparative Study of Injustice


Will take a look at different approaches to civil and human rights in selected developed and developing countries. There will also be a review of theory of justice and political consequences in chosen countries. A substantial part of the fourteen week semester will be used to examine the injustices of the past apartheid system of South African and comparing it to the struggle to end Jim Crow segregation in the United States. In addition, the Armenian genocide, the Rwandan genocide, and the Republic of the Congo genocide will be briefly reviewed and comparisons made. The course will also take a look at the attempts of ethnic cleansing in a number of different parts of the world. Our first review will start in our backyard with a look at how the Native Americans in the U.S. were subjected to a sophisticated genocide perpetrated by the U.S. government and the people of America. Racial injustices suffered by people of color in the United States are interconnected with injustices perpetrated on other people of color throughout the world.
