This volume analyses human rights in the context of globalization. Focusing on a broad range of human rights themes, it examines the human rights experiences of various countries. The volume covers important contemporary issues such as the relationship between human rights and globalization, climate change, unbridled corporate capitalism, global terrorism, and globalization and its impact on trade, investments, and people's movement. Establishing an interface between good governance and human rights, the work emphasizes the significance of new modern rights such as fundamental right to water. The volume also examines the framework of international legal provisions to deal with human rights violations. Providing a broad picture of the current and emerging human rights policy framework for the recognition of human rights, it also puts in perspective the conflicting tendencies of modern world towards the persistent struggle for recognizing human rights. With an interesting mix of North and South scholarship on globalization, human rights, and international law, this comprehensive and topical work would be invaluable to lawyers, and teachers, scholars, and students of law, political science, and development studies.
