This book provides a set of studies and reflections on emerging human rights on the basis of developments in law that have taken place since the adoption of the United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights.

The book focuses on issues and rights that were not originally included in the Universal Declaration but have become emerging areas of human rights including the right to environmental protection, humanitarian aid and human rights, and the right to democratic governance.

The contributors to the volume consider these developing rights in the light of contemporary national and international law, but also consider the wider picture and the contexts in which human rights may have effect. The book maps out areas of emerging rights, taking into consideration the aims and purposes of the Universal Declaration adopted in 1948 and considers the evolution of the human rights regimes and law.
