The development and enforcement of human rights norms has become a central feature of the foreign policy of leading governments and international institutions. This collection brings together fields as diverse as political theory, peace studies, development policy, international law and media studies, to present an original and tightly argued critique of current trends. Dealing with a range of issues concerning the implication of human rights approaches for humanitarian aid, state sovereignty, international law, democracy and political autonomy, Rethinking Human Rights questions whether human rights approaches satisfy the progressive claims to be made on their behalf.
