The Universal Declaration for Human Rights was approved in 1948 and yet more than fifty years later some human rights―especially the rights of groups such as women, minorities, and indigenous peoples―continue to be at risk. This book examines recent humanitarian catastrophes involving such groups and suggests how the society of states may develop a collective capacity for human rights enforcement. Above all, it emphasizes the long term efforts to stabilize weak or failing societies and to develop democratic governments on which the protection of human rights ultimately depends.

Gene M. Lyons is senior fellow at the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, Dartmouth College. James Mayall is Sir Patrick Sheehy Professor of International Relations, University of Cambridge.

Review:

[E]ditors Gene M. Lyons and James Mayall state that their book may 'raise more questions than answers.' This fine volume accomplishes that superbly, and the essays included also give full play to a number of authors who seek to explore group rights theory as it affects different groups. (Human Rights and Human Welfare)

This fine volume focuses on group rights, a field that is attracting new attention in the post-Cold War era. The arguments are philosophically stimulating, draw on an impressive history of ideas, and place human rights in context relative to other factors driving international relations. The authors score a major achievement.... (David Malone, president, International Peace Academy, New York)
