While a number of countries are signatory to international human rights legislation, not all have ratified their obligations and commitments to providing human rights in their domestic legislation (the USA for example, and Australia does not have its own national human rights charter). This essay question asks you to undertake a comparative analysis of the different ways countries have sought to enshrine their commitment to upholding human rights within their national jurisdictions and to evaluate the different ways their policies operate (select two case studies to examine). You will be assessed on your ability to demonstrate the complexities of implementing human rights legislation in different jurisdictions, and the challenges involved in upholding and maintaining human rights in different contexts. You are required to reflect on the some of the challenges involved in using a universal approach to human rights and consider the extent to which different states value the importance of upholding human rights.
