Around the world the pressure on human rights remains intense. The complexity and pace of a modern world, and the conflicts and strains it creates continually threaten individuals and groups in many places. Human Rights in Perspective represents a major appraisal of the progress and problems forty years after the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration is the basis of modern international law, and the internationally renowned contributors to this volume examine the role of the UN in protecting and encouraging respect for human rights, the civilizations and religious traditions which contribute to its universal validity, and the international and domestic socio-political and economic impediments for the realization of human rights in their fullest form.
It stands as an audit for the 1990s of this fundamentally important global problem.
