About this title


Our inalienable human rights were enshrined over 50 years ago in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, what does that mean to someone who is tortured, denied education or work, or unable to find asylum?

This No-Nonsense Guide looks at the theories of rights and universalism. It explores the difficult task of protecting human rights in times of war, the advances in international laws that have led to some rights abusers facing justice, and the conflicts that can occur when rights collide with culture. While progress is being made in some areas, millions continue to suffer. As the war on terror is drags on, the question begs to be asked: Are we willing to sacrifice hard-fought rights for so-called security?
