9780745323732: The Politics of Human Rights: A Global Perspective (Human Security in the Global Economy)

This is a new edition of this popular introduction to the politics of human rights.Tony Evans argues that the state's central role in protecting and promoting rights has been severely weakened under globalization and that as a consequence human rights are becoming less attainable.

As the value of the market grows, the value of individual human rights decreases. The author departs from traditional interpretations of human rights by focusing on the political economy of human rights rather than on the philosophical or legal aspects. He analyses how issues related to globalization, such as the environment, population movement patterns and free trade impact on individual human rights. In conclusion, he argues that the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and other major treaties must be renegotiated to take globalization into account.

Review:

'A humane and engaging polemic against globalization on the grounds that it undermines human rights and retards democratization.' --Global Review of Ethnopolitics  'A very useful book for those who wish to understand the position of human rights in today's world.' -- Peace News  'This book will appeal to critics of human rights and to those who question the growing, increasingly mainstream, political influence of rights discourse.' --International Relations

Book Description PLUTO PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the past, violations of human rights were commonly portrayed as atrocities perpetrated by tyrannical dictatorships. Today, the images of torture at Abu Ghraib in Iraq, and the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, put the lie to this assumption. State violations of human rights have a global reach.Tony Evan s introduction to the politics of human rights examines the impact of globalisation on global human rights. He argues that the state s role in protecting and promoting rights has been severely weakened under globalisation - and that the emerging global order may be a cause of many human rights violations. As the value of the market grows, the value of individual human rights decreases.The Politics of Human Rights departs from traditional interpretations of human rights by focusing on the political economy of human rights, rather than on the philosophical or legal aspects.
