Summary
""This book provides an interdisciplinary overview of international human rights issues, offering an international coverage (especially the Global South). It considers the philosophical foundations of human rights, explores the interpretive difficulties associated with identifying what constitutes human rights abuses, and evaluates various perspectives on human rights. It then analyzes institutions that strive to promote and enforce human rights standards including the United Nations system, regional human rights bodies, and domestic courts. The book also discusses a wide variety of substantive human rights including genocide, torture, capital punishment and other cruel and unusual punishments. In particular, the book covers those understudied topics such as socio-economic rights, cultural rights and environmental rights. It also focuses on the rights of marginalized groups including children's rights, rights of persons of disabilities, women's rights, labor rights, indigenous rights, and LGBTQ+ rights, and media and human rights.""--
