International Human Rights, Social Policy & Global

International Human Rights, Social Policy & Global

With international human rights under challenge, this book represents a comprehensive critique that adds a social policy perspective to recent political and legalistic analysis. Expert contributors draw on local and global examples to review constructs of universal rights and their impact on social policy and human welfare. With thorough analysis of their strengths, weaknesses and enforcement, it sets out their role in domestic and geopolitical affairs. For those with an interest in social policy, ethics, politics and international relations, this is an honest appraisal of both the concepts of international human rights and their realities.
