Course Description

This seminar studies the successes of LGBTQ rights activism globally with an in-depth focus on issue areas that afford a broad overview of international LGBTQ policy. In the first section, we focus on (1) the new theoretical frameworks in political science, sociology and international relations that deal with sexuality and LGBTQI issues. In the second part of the course, (2) an examination of global aspects of sexuality and LGBTQI issues allows us to look at how LGBTQI rights struggles arrive in the diplomatic arena, and how they affect international organizations' policies. In the third section, (3) case studies from various parts of the world will be discussed through the lenses of the international developments in LGBTQI issues. The main objective is to make students understand and criticize the increasingly important role LGBTQI issues play in international relations and development policies.
