Relationship between central state authority and individual rights
-Reflect on and discuss how central state state authority and individual rights develop together. Include how rights legitimate central authority, incorporate individuals within the state, and undermine local, traditional authorities. Use historical, contemporary, and transnational examples.
-You can draw on Boli’s historical statistical study, early history examples (Magna Carta, right of appeal, economic rights, Romeo &Juliet) more recent historical examples (civil rights movement, child welfare), and transnational examples (in which the nation-state is “local” authority relative to international organizations)
-The paper with the black lines is the essay topic, it explains my paper, the rest are notes from a book, you dont have to use them but they help a bit
