This site features a number of real world case studies related to human rights.  I can easly see incorporating the short case study descriptions from the site into discussion forums or class discussion in my introductory ethics classes or in a more spicific ethics course on human rights.  The case studies range from issues of genocide to women's rights to business ethics.  All of the case studies seem to also be available in a single file is a nice feature.

Technical Remarks:

The website design is pretty basic but it's relativly easy to navigate the site.
