List price: $14.95
Author: Paul Sieghart

When we talk about human rights today, we are on much finer ground than if we were discussing the "moral" and "natural" rights of man which philosophers have debated for so long. Since 1945 a veritable legal revolution has prompted the installation of a complete, universally agreed code of human rights in international law. This book explains for the general reader what lies behind the code, how it was made, how it works, and what it says.

Democracy And Human Rights In The Caribbean

Democracy And Human Rights In The Caribbean Lowest used price: $499.96
List price: $79.00
Author: Ivelaw L Griffith

The Caribbean, like regions elsewhere, is caught in what has been called democracy's global “Third Wave.” In this volume, contributors examine the nature of democratization in the region together with its accessory, human rights. The emphasis is to extend the analysis and debates beyond political democracy and civil and political rights to consider also economic democracy and economic and social rights. Early chapters address issues and dilemmas common to the democracy and human rights landscape throughout the region. In particular, economic crisis, drug trafficking, and political instability continue to threaten the region's relatively healthy human rights profile. Next, contributors consider how the form of Caribbean democracy and the status of human rights have been influenced by foreign actors and external developments. Particular attention is paid to the role of the OAS, the United Nations, NGOs, and international law. Because the democracy and human rights challenges and dynamics vary across countries, the work also offers extensive single-country assessments.

The International Protection of Internally Displaced Persons (Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law) Lowest new price: $97.06
Lowest used price: $40.93
List price: $165.00
Author: Catherine Phuong
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Despite the fact that there are up to 25 million internally displaced persons around the world, their plight is still little known. Like refugees, internally displaced persons have been forced to leave their homes because of war and human rights abuses, but they have not left their country. This has major consequences in terms of the protection available to them. This 2005 book aims to offer a clear and easily accessible overview of this important humanitarian and human rights challenge. In contrast with other books on the topic, it provides an objective evaluation of UN efforts to protect the internally displaced. It will be of interest to all those involved with the internally displaced, as well as anyone seeking to gain an overall understanding of this complex issue.

Human Rights for the 21st Century: Sovereignty, Civil Society, Culture (Stanford Studies in Human Rights)

Human Rights for the 21st Century: Sovereignty, Civil Society, Culture (Stanford Studies in Human Rights) Lowest new price: $16.40
Lowest used price: $5.77
List price: $22.95
Author: Helen M. Stacy
Brand: Helen M Stacy

A new moral, ethical, and legal framework is needed for international human rights law. Never in human history has there been such an elaborate international system for human rights, yet from massive disasters, such as the Darfur genocide, to everyday tragedies, such as female genital mutilation, human rights abuses continue at an alarming rate. As the world population increases and global trade brings new wealth as well as new problems, international law can and should respond better to those who live in fear of violence, neglect, or harm. Modern critiques global human rights fall into three categories: sovereignty, culture, and civil society. These are not new problems, but have long been debated as part of the legal philosophical tradition. Taking lessons from tradition and recasting them in contemporary light, Helen Stacy proposes new approaches to fill the gaps in current approaches: relational sovereignty, reciprocal adjudication, and regional human rights. She forcefully argues that law and courts must play a vital role in forging a better human rights vision in the future.
