No philosophical idea has had a more profound impact on international relations and world politics than human rights. Within half a century since World War II, human rights developed into the only universally accepted value system of our times. This book is tailored to the multidisciplinary Vienna Master of Arts in Human Rights and provides human rights professionals with a first insight into the fascinating and multifaceted world of human rights with its universal and regional organizations, standards, and protection mechanisms. All Human Rights for All covers the rich spectrum of civil, political, economic, social, cultural, and collective rights, as well as the rights of specific groups, such as children, the elderly, indigenous peoples, and women. The book particularly focuses on contemporary issues and challenges, such as the protection of the environment and climate change, counterterrorism, as well as democratization and new social media. It also looks at practical skills, including human rights education and training, litigation, lobbying, fact-finding, monitoring, and capacity building. The contributors are scholars from different disciplines at Vienna's universities and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights, along with practitioners working in international and regional organizations based in Vienna, such as the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.
