Welcome To The Department of Political Science
The shocking image of a hooded man and a child behind a barb wire fence should prompt a series of questions from viewers. How did these people come to be in this position? For what reasons was power exercised in this manner? Are there any ethical or practical limits to the power exercised by the state? How were policies designed and implemented that led to such a state of affairs? Is this a violation of human rights?
