  • Configuring the UN Human Rights System in the "Era of Implementation":
           Mainland and Archipelago
    • Abstract: In 2005, when UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan spoke for the last time to the Commission on Human Rights, he emphasized that "the era of declaration is now giving way, as it should, to an era of implementation."1 The UN human rights system is often understood as the Human Rights Council, human rights treaty-bodies, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).2 This article calls this combination the UN human rights mainland and argues a UN human rights system consisting only of the mainland cannot adequately advance human rights in the "era of implementation." It suggests the UN human rights system should be understood as including the mainland and an ... Read More

  • Compensatory Women's Rights Legal Education in Eastern Europe: The Women's
           Human Rights Training Institute
    • Abstract: For more than two decades, I have spent a significant amount of time teaching courses on women's rights as a volunteer or as a Fulbright visiting professor in law or other faculties and working with NGOs in the post-socialist states of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union (hereafter the region). Over time, I came to understand that these were one-off teaching experiences. Having a foreigner teach this important new subject was and still appears not to be a prelude or commitment to its full inclusion in the law faculty curriculum. Even now, it is most likely to be relegated a single lecture in an optional human rights course despite its foundational relevance to modern law and legal systems.Based on my ... Read More

  • "To Save Succeeding Generations from the Scourge of War": Jan Smuts and
           the Ideological Foundations of the United Nations
    • Abstract: An under-explored case study in understanding the complex foundations of human rights and international law is the visionary and controversial South African, Jan Christian Smuts. A principal author of the Covenant of the League of Nations, and the person directly responsible for the recognition of human rights as a founding value in the Charter of the United Nations, he was also the premier of white-ruled South Africa, which would become infamous under his successors as the apartheid state.In Long Walk to Freedom, Nelson Mandela recounts how, as a young undergraduate student at Fort Hare in 1939, he attended a speech given by Smuts on the campus of the university. He found Smuts to be a generally "sympathetic ... Read More

  • Decentering the Human: Moroccan Islamism and Rights
    • Abstract: The foundations of human rights in Western thought center around the individual human [ḍhat insān]. Generally speaking, [it] idolizes the individual [shakhs], because it considers human rights and the rights of the individual [shakhs] as superior to the rights of others, because the human [insān] is the axis. But [for] us, as Muslims, the human [insān] is not the axis. God Almighty is the axis.1Over the course of a forty-three minute interview BF, an unemployed supporter of the Moroccan Party of Justice and Development in the provincial capital of Chefchaouen, talked extensively and calmly, if at times emotionally, about Islam, democracy, human rights, and Moroccan politics. BF, whose name I withhold for his ... Read More

  • Deviant and Over-Compliance: The Domestic Politics of Child Labor in
           Bolivia and Argentina
    • Abstract: International human rights agreements have proliferated since the 1990s.1 The agreements seek to encourage states to behave in ways that respect human rights. Further, they play a major role in shaping ideas about how world politics should be conducted. Indeed, the influence of human rights agreements is now such that it is felt in the domestic politics of non-democracies.2 However, despite their proliferation, we still have an incomplete understanding of how states respond to internationally agreed charters of rights, why they respond how they do, the circumstances under which rights treaties make a difference, and what that difference might be. Beth Simmons3 and others4 argue that attention should be paid to ... Read More

The Swazi new born is twenty times more likely to die before reaching her fifth birthday than her Swiss counterpart.1 If she reaches adulthood, she will have been educated for half the number of years.2 She is twenty-seven times more likely to be undernourished.3 Overall, being born in Swaziland means she can expect to live thirty fewer years than if she was born in Switzerland, and the cause from which she will eventually die most likely could otherwise have been avoided.4On witnessing the real life tragedy of those around the world living without shelter, without access to education, and at risk of early mortality, it ...

  • The Prosecution of Sexual and Gender Crimes in the National Courts of
           Argentina
    • Abstract: It's true that they took us out for dinner and I'll tell you something else. Once they took a group of girls out dancing, but I'm going to give you the context: they had just murdered the husband of one of the girls, and they took her out dancing in one of the most "in" nightclubs in Buenos Aires. You tell me that wasn't psychological torture at its most sophisticated-that your husband's murderers, who had beaten you and tortured you with an electric prod, should then take you out dancing.The investigation and prosecution of sexual and gender-based violence in the context of international and non-international armed conflicts has been celebrated as a success and "triumph of justice."2 Due to evolving case law and ...

  • Global or Regional': Realizing Women's Rights in Southeast Asia
    • Abstract: The global human rights system works by setting standards that are then invoked by a variety of actors to persuade, shame, or coerce states into compliance.1 In propitious circumstances (for example, where there is an active civil society, democratic conditions enable freedom of expression, and a politically responsive government), international human rights law plays a constraining role in changing expectations about what constitutes appropriate behavior for governments.2 However, many problems exist. Change is very slow; many states (both predatory and decent) are resistant to influence and in circumstances of exception (civil conflict, war, political crisis) when human rights are most vulnerable to abuse, the ...

  • Korea's Grievous War by Su-kyoung Hwang (review)
    • Abstract: One of the best-selling Korean War histories of recent years devotes an entire six-page chapter to a discussion of Douglas MacArthur's mother.1 However, that 719-page book, by a celebrated American popular historian, spares not a single word to inform the reader that massive numbers of innocent Korean civilians—perhaps two million or more—were killed in that war, many at the hands of the US forces under the same General MacArthur."The subject of civilian casualties occupies a marginal place in the American memory of the Korean War,"2 Su-kyoung Hwang, with mild understatement, concludes in her Korea's Grievous War. Hwang's book is a powerful, deeply researched, passionately delivered antidote to this blindness that ... Read More

  • Idealism Beyond Borders: The French Revolutionary Left and the Rise of
           Humanitarianism, 1954—1988 by Eleanor Davey (review)
    • Abstract: Any study of the French Left is an intimidating enterprise, and the history of post-war humanitarianism and its fissiparous politics at least co-equal in terms of the scale of challenge. Eleanor Davey, in her first monograph, has prepared a superb study that traces the arc of French humanitarian idealism—which was, at key moments, not so ideal, and still less humane—but always revolutionary. Charting and characterizing the relationship between support for third-world revolution (tiers-mondisme) and revolutionary humanitarianism (sans-frontierisme), Idealism Beyond Borders takes, as its prime inquiry, "the way in which the ideas of tiers-mondisme and sans-frontierisme rose, fell, and interacted."1 It is this final ...

    • Abstract: Jacob Katz Cogan (Law, University of Cincinnati), Ian Hurd (Political Science, Northwestern University), and Ian Johnstone (Law, Fletcher School, Tufts University) have edited a major resource on international organizations comprising almost 1,250 pages. It belongs in every major research library and on the shelf of every serious scholar who teaches and researches or is otherwise involved on the subject—despite its hefty price tag of $210.The sixty-six contributors and their essays are organized into several major categories: 1) introductory overviews of the field based on law or politics; 2) history; 3) forms of different organizations—for example, supranational organizations, and private transnational ...

  • Rightlessness in an Age of Rights: Hannah Arendt and the Contemporary
           Struggles of Migrants by Ayten Gündoğdu (review)
    • Abstract: In The Origins of Totalitarianism, Hannah Arendt famously called for the "right to have rights." Reflecting on her own status as a stateless refugee from Germany, Arendt broadened her analysis to include the problem of statelessness as a whole. Ayten Gündoğdu engages with the entirety of Arendt's opus, especially with The Human Condition and On Revolution as well as with The Origins, to unpack the various meanings and implications of this call.Gündoğdu starts with what Arendt called the "perplexity" of the contradiction between state sovereignty and the universal enjoyment of human rights. Then and now, rights are protected—or not—by sovereign states that normally extend their protection only to their citizens, and ... Read More

  • Missing Persons: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on the Disappeared ed. by
           Derek Congram (review)
    • Abstract: "And yet perhaps this is the reason you cry,/this the nightmare you wake screaming from:/being forever/in the pre-trembling of a house that falls," writes the poet Galway Kinnell, in a poem addressed to his infant daughter.1 The words "missing person" evoke this same feeling: the sense of an emergency that has become frozen in time, a disaster that may have already happened but whose dimensions one does not yet fully comprehend. To mourn is to know, with certainty, that you have lost someone, and to mark that loss. But when a person is missing—neither certainly dead nor certainly alive—loved ones are thrown into a state sometimes called "ambiguous loss." Ambiguous loss "freeze[s] . . . the grief process" with no ... Read More

  • Six Authors in Search of Justice: Engaging with Political Transitions by
           Michael Newman (review)
    • Abstract: Michael Newman's new book, Six
      Authors in Search of Justice, is an unusual study. It is the sort of work, I surmise, that can only have been written by a scholar who, looking back on an accomplished career, no longer feels the need to acquiesce to the disciplinary divisions that define success in most scholarship and publishing.Six
      Authors in Search of Justice is a work of literary history by a political scientist that takes as its topic, broadly speaking, patterns of aesthetic and ethical reflection during times of political transformation. The monograph seeks to bring together two audiences: on the one hand, literary scholars who might be attracted to the case studies of writers Victor Serge, Albert Camus, Jorge ... Read More

  • Human Rights and Schooling: An Ethical Framework for Teaching for Social
           Justice by Audrey Osler, and: Restoring Dignity in Public Schools: Human
           Rights Education in Action by Maria Hantzopoulos (review)
    • Abstract: Although written well before the Trump Presidency, Human Rights and Schooling gains new relevance as educators address a regime that seems to violate basic principles of human rights and to endorse discrimination, violence, disrespect for truth, and a narrow national if not nationalistic perspective. Audrey Osler sees in human rights the necessary principles for living together in multicultural nation-states and communities and a framework for realizing equitable and just learning communities.1 Her book is both aspirational and highly practical, offering an ethical framework as well as solid, concrete advice for education in a heterogeneous democracy.Informing the book is Osler's vision of human rights education ...

  • Feminist and Human Rights Struggles in Peru: Decolonizing Transitional
           Justice by Pascha Bueno-Hansen (review)
    • Abstract: In this thoughtful book, Pascha Bueno-Hansen brings intersectionality and de-colonial feminist theories and methods to bear on the practice of human rights and transitional justice. Using Peru's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (PTRC) from 2001 to 2003 and its public hearings as the focus of her analysis, Bueno-Hansen argues that just as it was insufficient to "add women and stir" to the development agenda, neither is it sufficient to add a gendered or cultural veneer to transitional justice. Indeed, rather than deploying gender as a synonym for women, or assuming culture matters only when transitional justice practitioners encounter an ethnic or racial "Other," her argument is that we take seriously both the ...

  • Vulnerability and Security in Human Rights Literature and Visual Culture
           by Alexandra Schultheis Moore (review)
    • Abstract: Because an investment in human rights always returns us to lived experience, it invariably raises questions of how to document actual events. Out of this foundational gesture of documentation comes the intense focus in human rights scholarship on methods of narration and representation. The law, human rights reports, witness of humanitarian workers, government and corporate reporting, and work of journalists all exhibit some degree of their own narrative unconscious: ways in which they presume to capture truth (if not the real), glossing over the mediations which render convincing representation. Much of the intervention of literary scholars in the field of human rights raises awareness of this narrative ... Read More
