  • Pragmatism and Multidimensionality in Human Rights Advocacy
    • Abstract: Recalling the ancient if apocryphal Chinese curse, these are truly "interesting times" for human rights. Only several short decades ago, there was general faith that the global spread of liberal democracy and human rights was inevitable. It was not a question of "if," but "how" and "when."1 Today, democracy is in retreat in numerous countries around the world, and trust in democratic institutions is eroding, even in some consolidated liberal democracies.2 Alongside this assault on democratic norms, we bear collective witness to wavering commitments to the rule of law and human rights. Whether it is death squads in the Philippines, US drone strikes around the world, or the carnage in Syria, powers small and large ... Read More

  • How do States Perceive Extraterritorial Human Rights Obligations'
           Insights from the Universal Periodic Review
    • Abstract: Human rights are cosmopolitan norms that recognize all human beings as "ultimate units of concern" and demand that all human beings treat each in accordance with that recognition.1 In this sense, human beings possess human rights not because they are members of a particular nation or ethnic group, but simply because they are human beings.2 Furthermore, because human beings are members of an all-inclusive community, or citizens of the world, they have duties towards all other human beings and not just towards their compatriots.3 These cosmopolitan values form the basis of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the founding document of the human rights regime.4 Emphasizing the universality of human rights ...

  • A New Look at International Law: Gendering the Practices of Humanitarian
           Medicine in Europe's "Small Wars," 1879–1907
    • Abstract: Beginning with the Geneva Convention (for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded in Armies in the Field, 1864), international law transformed the practice of medical battlefield services. State ratification brought a dynamic reform agenda into domestic life because the law required medical provisioning for the states' soldiers and, in time, sailors. The agreement also presumed the creation of national volunteer relief organizations, known as Red Cross and, after 1878, Red Crescent Societies, to supplement the work of each official military medical corps in wartime and help with national disasters in peacetime. It sustained an increasingly dense medical network of organizations, publications, symbols, and ... Read More

  • Prosecuting Sexual Violence at the Cambodian War Crimes Tribunal:
           Challenges, Limitations, and Implications
    • Abstract: The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) for the Prosecution of Crimes Committed during the Period of Democratic Kampuchea has been called "the most important trial in the world."1 The ECCC was established to prosecute crimes committed by the Communist Party of Kampuchea (CPK), commonly known as the Khmer Rouge, in Democratic Kampuchea (DK), as Cambodia was called at the time. The first co-defendant in Case 002 was the DK Head of State Khieu Samphan.2 The second co-defendant, CPK Deputy Secretary Nuon Chea, was the second in command in the CPK regime and was responsible for implementing the directives of the Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot.3 Chea also served on the highest decision-making and legal ...

  • Ill Treatment and Torture in Sweden: A Critique of Cross-Case Comparisons
    • Abstract: For the past three decades, agents of the security forces in Sweden have in certain years allegedly engaged in acts of ill treatment and torture. Consequently, human rights reports published annually by Amnesty International and the US State Dept. provide documentary evidence of a pattern of abuse perpetrated by security forces in Sweden.1 What explains this unexpected case of human rights abuse' The answer to this question reveals an important theoretical concept that has not previously been discussed as part of the human rights documentation and coding process: the level of institutional transparency.2We have selected Sweden for our analysis because it has an unexpectedly high value on reports-based measures of ...

           School Students of Senegal
    • Abstract: In April 2010, Human Rights Watch (HRW) released a 114-page report containing thirteen full-color photographs depicting child exploitation and abuse called Off the Backs of the Children, Forced Begging and Other Abuses against Talibés in Senegal (hereinafter HRW Report).1 The HRW Report detailed the exploitation of children in Senegal resulting in the violation of numerous international and national human rights laws and criminal statutes.2 The named perpetrators included abusive Qur'anic school instructors, state governments, and parents who knowingly sent their children into harmful circumstances.3 The HRW Report's worldwide release was covered by news outlets throughout Senegal and major global news agencies ...

  • Essential Surgery as a Component of the Right to Health: A Call to Action
    • Abstract: The contours of the right to health have been continuously evolving since the World Health Organization (WHO) originally declared in 1946 that "[t]he enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being."1 A data-driven methodology defined by the Committee on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (CESCR) in General Comment No. 14 has helped guide changes in the content of the right to health. In that document, the CESCR urges states parties to "utilize the extensive information and advisory services of WHO with regard to data collection, disaggregation, and the development of right to health indicators and benchmarks."2 This approach would require that states ...

  • Use of Deadly Force by Peacekeepers Operating Outside of Armed Conflict
           Situations: What Laws Apply'
    • Abstract: This article examines the United Nations use of deadly force by UN peacekeeping missions, and assesses the extent to which the UN theoretical approach and its twenty-first century field practice complies with international legal standards protecting the right to life.Specifically, this article focuses on peacekeeping missions mandated under Chapter VII of the UN Charter (Chapter VII), but operating in situations where international humanitarian law (IHL) is not applicable. Under the Secretary-General's 1999 Bulletin on Observance by United Nations Forces of International Humanitarian Law, UN peacekeepers must comply with at least the fundamental rules and principles of IHL set out in the Bulletin "when in ...

  • Realizing Roma Rights ed. by Jacqueline Bhabha, Andrzej Mirga, &
           Margareta Matache (review)
    • Abstract: "No one will be left behind" is an important call included in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).1 The fact that the 8 to 10 million Roma who live on most continents, but primarily in Europe, are one of the most marginalized and stigmatized minorities in the world underscores the importance of these global goals: 80 percent of Roma are at risk of poverty compared to an EU average of 17 percent, and 30 percent live in households with no tap water.Most adults will recall literature from their childhood in which the Roma were portrayed at best as a highly exotic people living on the outskirts of the city in caravans playing music and living a life of freedom, as well as being portrayed mostly as thieves and ...

  • Statelessness in the Caribbean: The Paradox of Belonging in a Postnational
           World by Kristy A. Belton (review)
    • Abstract: Kristy Belton opens her interesting volume with a critique of the notion that at least in developed democracies, citizenship is losing its salience in favor of the human rights that everyone enjoys, merely by being human.1 Democracies tend to grant most human rights to everyone resident in their territories, even including undocumented ("illegal") migrants. Belton disputes this contention. She argues that even if migrants are afforded human rights in some democracies, this privilege does not extend to the stateless.Belton argues that statelessness in the twenty-first century is very different from the statelessness about which Hannah Arendt wrote after World War II.2 Arendt wrote about stateless migrants wandering ...

  • Human Rights and Radical Social Transformation: Futurity, Alterity, Power
           by Kathryn McNeilly (review)
    • Abstract: Costas Douzinas once wrote that:Human rights are the negative principle at the heart of the social imaginary. The end of human rights, like that of natural law, is the promise of the "not yet," of the indeterminacy of existential self-creation against the fear of uncertainty and the in-authentic certainties of the present. When the apologists of pragmatism pronounce the end of ideology, of history or utopia, they do not mark the triumph of human rights; on the contrary, they bring human rights to an end. The end of human rights comes when they lose their utopian end.1Kathryn McNeilly's book, Human Rights and Radical Social Transformation: Futurity, Alterity, Power,2 offers extended reflection upon the "not yet" ...

  • Violence and Restraint in Civil War: Civilian Targeting in the Shadow of
           International Law by Jessica A. Stanton (review)
    • Abstract: Jessica Stanton adds an impressively panoramic study to the scholarly literature on the plight of civilians mired in war. Her Stakhanovite data collection and coding have produced a dataset tracking 115 post-Cold War civil wars across a spectrum of violence against civilians.1 It's clear that belligerents frequently target non-combatants; of the 103 rebel groups Stanton researched, 30 percent massacred civilians, 27 percent burned civilian homes and crops, 29 percent exploded bombs in populated public areas, and 11 percent forcibly expelled civilians from territory. Among the state militaries Stanton studied, 24 percent carried out civilian massacres, 47 percent torched homes and crops, 22 percent bombed civilians ... Read More

  • Atrocity Speech Law: Addressing Hate that Does Grave Harm
    • Abstract: Gregory Gordon's book, Atrocity Speech Law, is a groundbreaking work that has arrived when it is urgently needed, in the midst of rising hateful rhetoric.1 Meticulously researched and thoughtfully written, the book exposes maddening gaps in international law regarding dangerous speech. It then proposes a bold remedy: an innovative, holistic framework that streamlines, coordinates, and expands the existing laws. Against the current backdrop of hostility—with its angry assertions of racial and national supremacy, terrorist recruitment videos, shouts of rage at refugees, and dizzying shift in the tone of political discourse—this book is a crucial response to speech that can trigger atrocity. In it, Gordon lays out the ... Read More

  • Women and the War on Boko Haram: Wives, Weapons, Witnesses by Hilary
           Matfess (review)
    • Abstract: Plutarch (c. 45 to 125 A.D.) asserted that "An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics." As if to echo the warning of the Greek philosopher, twenty centuries later a contemporary writer, Yuval Noah Hariri in his book, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, made the implicit explicit by asserting that "[p]eople are egalitarian by nature, and unequal societies can never function well due to resentment and dissatisfaction."1 Indeed, it is not inequality per se that causes social dysfunction, but the neglect, if not the oppression, of the poor and the weak, and the injustice that accompanies inequality, particularly if seen as the result of corruption. This is especially ... Read More
