From the Local to the Global considers how rights that have been agreed upon in the global arena of world politics are locally implemented - and, here, how they reach the local children of Bangladesh's urban slums and poor rural areas. Combining an analytical framework grounded in international relations scholarship on global governance with empirical field research methods that have their basis in sociology and anthropology, Andrea Schapper develops a unique perspective on human rights governance in developing countries, where the state often lacks the required resources, capacities and expertise for implementing rights. By analyzing the norm promoting steps between the global and the local level - and, in particular, how governments regularly enter into partnerships with international and local non-governmental organizations, as well as private businesses - this book fills a gap in the study of human rights implementation and protection.
