Examining Critical Perspectives on Human Rights

Examining Critical Perspectives on Human Rights sets out a practical and theoretical overview of the future of human rights within the United Kingdom and beyond. A number of internationally renowned scholars respond to David Kennedy's contribution 'The International Human Rights Movement: Still Part of the Problem?' from a range of different perspectives. With its combination of theory and practice of international and domestic human rights at this key juncture in the human rights project, it is relevant to all scholars and practitioners with an interest in human rights.
1. Critical examination of the role of human rights will appeal to human rights scholars in both legal and other social science disciplines
2. Includes contributions from both the USA and the UK
3. Draws on theoretical and international developments in the human rights debate, making this of interest to academics, lawyers and policy makers with interests in the field of human rights
