Description

This book tells the story of 15 human rights cases from around the world, including cases adjudicated by a court or commission as well as controversies decided outside the courthouse. The cases illustrate key themes, including the development of human rights norms and the work of human rights organizations; the function of individual and collective identities in human rights struggles; the role of international criminal norms in protecting human rights; globalization, foreign policy, and the economy; and human rights in a world at war. The text illustrates the dynamic interaction between advocacy and legal doctrine.
