9781848446809: Human Rights in Asia

Does the increasing prominence of Asia also mark a new era for human rights in the region? This timely book uncovers the political drivers behind both recent regional and country-based changes to the recognition, promotion, and protection of rights.

Human Rights in Asia focuses on the relationships between political regimes, institutions and cultures, and external actors, such as international organizations, NGOs, and business. The contributing authors provide important discussions on Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Phillipines. Thematic chapters then go on to frame these individually focused contributions, by examining the international pressure to 'normalize' rights regimes, and the relationship between Islam and rights in the region.

Providing a unique combination of country-specific and thematic analysis, this book will be a fascinating and beneficial read for postgraduate and undergraduate students in human rights and international relations, as well as scholars in politics, human rights, international relations and government and NGO analysts.

Contributors include: M.K. Connors, T.W.D. Davis, M. Ford, B. Galligan, A. Kent, A. McGregor, T. Milner, R.C. Pangalangan, S. Peou, G. Rodan, A. Saeed, R. Samaddar

About the Author:

Edited by Thomas W.D. Davis and Brian Galligan, University of Melbourne, Australia

Review:

This timely collection tracks legal, cultural, political and institutional developments concerning human rights and Asia over the last decade, and, crucially, helps to move the Asia/human rights discourse beyond the Asian 'values' debate. Covering both country-specific and thematic analyses, it will be a key addition to the library of all who are interested in the promotion and protection of human rights.

- Sarah Joseph, Monash University, Australia

Asia - in all its robust variety - is a hotbed of human rights controversy and conflict. It also harbours great potential and promise to improve the standards of human rights enjoyed by its peoples. This tremendously readable and insightful collection of essays shirks neither perspective, employing an impressive array of political, economic, cultural and legal arguments as to how to exploit the good and counteract the bad. --- David Kinley, University of Sydney, Australia
