The volume covers important contemporary issues such as the relationship between human rights and globalization, climate change, unbridled corporate capitalism, global terrorism, and globalization and its impact on trade, investments, and people's movement. Establishing an interface between good governance and human rights, the work emphasizes the significance of new modern rights such as fundamental right to water. The volume also examines the framework of international legal provisions to deal with human rights violations.
