  • Human Rights and Artificial Intelligence: An Urgently Needed Agenda
    • Abstract: Artificial intelligence generates challenges for human rights. Inviolability of human life is the central idea behind human rights, an underlying implicit assumption being the hierarchical superiority of humankind to other forms of life meriting less protection. These basic assumptions are questioned through the anticipated arrival of entities that are not alive in familiar ways but may nonetheless be sentient and intellectually and, perhaps eventually, morally superior to humans. To be sure, this scenario may never come to pass and in any event lies in a part of the future beyond one’s current grasp. But it is urgent to get this matter on the agenda. Threats posed by technology to other areas of human rights are ... Read More

  • Promoting the Right of Freedom of Religion: Diverse Pathways to Religious
           Tolerance and Freedom of Religion and the Implications for American
           Foreign Policy
    • Abstract: The fundamental right to Freedom of Religion and Belief (FoRB) is often in the news. Various politicians lament the fact that individuals around the world are not able to practice and live up to the tenets of their faith due to government persecution or hostility from non-state actors, despite the fact that this right is codified in international law.1 Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s (ISIS) brutality towards Christians, Yazdis, Shiites, and Sunni Muslims who challenge their theology or question their policies has received much political and media attention in the last few years. ISIS’s use of religiously motivated terrorism2 led not only to the death of thousands of people, but also to the denial of FoRB for ... Read More

  • Animals Are People Too: Explaining Variation in Respect for Animal Rights
    • Abstract: Although the philosophical debate about whether—and to what extent—humans ought to recognize the rights of non-human animals has been ongoing for hundreds of years, scholars have yet to conduct a comprehensive and systematic analysis of why some people or polities do, or do not, support animal rights. It is well documented, however, that views on whether animals deserve rights, and exactly what rights they deserve, vary widely amongst individuals, local political communities, cultures, and nations.1 According to Gallup’s “Values and Beliefs Survey” conducted in 2017, for example, 51 percent of Americans agreed that medical testing on animals is morally acceptable, while 44 percent thought it was morally wrong.2 In ...

  • The Papal Human Rights Discourse: The Difference Pope Francis Makes
    • Abstract: International relations and human rights scholars show little interest in the papacy, which stands as the leader of the largest transnational religious group, and in the papal human rights discourse. This lack of interest is surprising, given the religious sources of human rights and the fact that religious actors translate their notions of human rights into a secular language and context. In addition, debates on human rights and religion have merged into the realm of international politics and study. Focusing on the papacy as a specific actor, this article contextualizes the papal human rights discourse since the Second World War. The article contributes a hitherto neglected perspective to the debate on human ... Read More

  • My Child’s Journey Home: Perspectives of Adult Family Members on the

    • Abstract: Family separation and reunification impacts millions of families worldwide each year.1 This article will describe the process of family separation and reunification from the perspectives of adult family members of the disappeared children of El Salvador. The article will provide historical context on the disappeared Salvadoran children, describe the research team’s prior study on the children’s experiences with separation and reunification, review relevant psychological theories and literature and present findings from the current study on the relatives of the disappeared children, and discuss implications for improving family wellbeing.Thousands of children were forcibly separated from their families during El ...

  • United States Human Rights Policy: The Corporate Lobby
    • Abstract: Supplemental Material: AppendixHuman rights became a central part of the US foreign policy agenda in the early 1970s for geopolitical reasons, largely in isolation from the interest group struggles characteristic in other domains of politics.1 Today, by contrast, a large number of interest groups take an active stance on US human rights-related policy, and by many accounts, their prevalence and importance have grown over time.2 Between 2007 and 2010, special interests spent over $186 million lobbying human rights-related legislation before Congress. This legislation included laws to join and implement international human rights agreements, monitor US compliance with human rights treaties, limit US ... Read More

    • Abstract: Under the basic rules of the inter-American system, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (Commission) has the competence to apply the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man to all member states of the Organization of American States (OAS). Technically, however, only the judgments of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (Court), pursuant to the American Convention on Human Rights (American Convention), are legally binding.1 The United States is the only one of the twenty-one original member states of the OAS, other than Cuba (which has a unique history in the OAS) that failed to become a party to the American Convention—the principal human rights treaty for the Western Hemisphere, which ...

  • Terminating Childhood: Dissonance and Synergy between Global Children’s
           Rights Norms and Local Discourses About the Transition from Childhood to
           Adulthood in Ghana
    • Abstract: Much has been written about the dissonance that exists between children’s rights standards embedded within international laws and the reality of children’s lives in countries whose cultural traditions and intellectual philosophies have developed along trajectories quite different to those taken by Western European and North American societies.1 In fact, culture and global children’s rights principles have, especially in the years since the adoption of the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, been presented as polar opposites.2 In particular, the Western bias that is evident in dominant human rights traditions, which emerged within the context of the Enlightenment, the French and American Revolutions, the ...

  • Recognizing Reza Afshari: Historical Challenges/Contemporary Challenges
    • Abstract: This encomium honors Reza Afshari’s remarkable intellectual engagement with human rights, much of which has taken place in the pages of Human Rights Quarterly. Afshari is a singular scholar: old-fashioned in his stubborn intellectual integrity; always engaged in the vitality of current debates; and forward looking in anticipating trends in human rights scholarship well before they became mainstream (even if this has sometimes gone unacknowledged). These are just some of the reasons Afshari received the International Studies Association (ISA) Human Rights Section 2017 Distinguished Scholar Award. The contributions below come from the ISA 2018 panel honoring Afshari. Their purpose is not just to comment on Afshari’s ... Read More

  • Challenges Toward a Human Rights of Structural Transformation: Connecting
           Theory and Lived Realities
    • Abstract: Reza Afshari’s work has long forced readers to question orthodox assumptions regarding human rights. It is, therefore, discouraging that the disconnect Afshari identified between human rights theory and lived realities remains quite present in too much contemporary human rights’ scholarship.1 Such continued theoretical disconnects—and their debilitating real world impacts—must be confronted if human rights are to be part of alternatives to the xenophobic nationalism sweeping the globe. To that end, Afshari’s critiques of scholarly orthodoxy on human rights are a reminder of other orthodoxies that also must be challenged if human rights are to move past their beleaguered status quo. To do so requires that human ... Read More

  • Normative Consensus and Contentious Practice: Challenges to Universalism
           in International Human Rights Courts
    • Abstract: In 2015 the Russian Constitutional Court announced that it would review all of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) rulings against Russia for their constitutionality.1 This decision, which both the Duma and the Kremlin supported, underscored a fundamental disagreement between Russia and the ECHR about both the substance of human rights norms and the ways in which disagreements about human rights can and should be resolved. Russia has been a member of the Council of Europe since 1996 and agreed to accept the compulsory jurisdiction of the ECHR in 1998. Russian citizens regularly seek recourse at the ECHR and Russia even complies with many of the Court’s demands to pay financial reparations to victims. And yet ... Read More

  • In Praise of Secularism: An Appreciation of Reza Afshari
    • Abstract: Reza Afshari is an unapologetic secularist. He defends both the rights of religious minorities in Iran, and all Iranians’ right to live free from any reference to or constraints by any religion whatsoever.Since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, members of the Iranian Baha’i community have been persecuted. The Baha’i are followers of the nineteenth century Persian prophet, Bah’u’lláh, whom they consider a messenger of God along with Jesus, Muhammad, and others. An estimated 200 Baha’i were executed in Iran from 1979 to 1984.1 To this day Baha’i endure considerable political and legal disabilities, such as exclusion from universities and frequent harassment and imprisonment. Many thousands are now in exile, having ... Read More

  • Decolonization: The Black Box of Human Rights'
    • Abstract: In 2007, Reza Afshari published a remarkable article in Human Rights Quarterly. It marked a turning point for the new human rights historiography that has emerged over the last decade, but it has not been fully recognized for this contribution. The article “On Historiography of Human Rights” was at a first glance a sixty-seven-page reflection on Paul Gordon Lauren’s Pulitzer-nominated book The Evolution of Human Rights: Visions Seen. In reality, it was so much more. What Afshari achieved was to write a piece that addressed not only historiography, but also historical method and managed to present an alternative history of human rights. He painted on a large canvas while paying considerable attention to detail at ... Read More

  • Reza Afshari and Cultural Relativism
    • Abstract: Virtually two decades ago, Reza Afshari wrote a book entitled Human Rights in Iran: The Abuse of Cultural Relativism,1 in which he argued the need to find a balance between conflicting pressures of cultural diversity and universally binding human rights. Iran, with its January 2018 unrest, is illustrative of this age-old debate over cultural relativism. Afshari’s debate about who controls power and culture is particularly relevant to current developments not only in Iran but throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Advocating a secular conception of relations between religion and the state, Afshari explored the ways in which the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) had manipulated cultural relativism. He ...

  • On Reza Afshari’s “On Historiography of Human Rights”
    • Abstract: The idea that all human beings have certain rights by virtue of their humanity has a history. Does that history stretch back deep into the early part of the last century' Absolutely. How about before the Industrial Revolution' Perhaps, if we jettison significant portions of the Universal Declaration. And anything earlier than the middle of the seventeenth century becomes really suspect. To take it back to antiquity is preposterous.In my view, the reason for this is that the language of human rights arose alongside the formation and consolidation of the modern nation-state, and the extension of the capitalist mode of production as the dominant form of political economy across ever wider parts of the globe. Obviously ... Read More

  • HATE: Why We Should Resist it with Free Speech, Not Censorship by Nadine
           Strossen (review)
    • Abstract: Hate is trending. The sitting president of the United States regularly mobilizes his political constituency by vilifying Mexican immigrants as “criminals and rapists” who “infest” America, and by promoting a “zero tolerance” policy at the border that punitively separates children from their parents, including persons applying for asylum. There has been a resurgence in white nationalist ideology globally both in mainstream electoral politics and in ugly scenes on the streets of Charlottesville, Dresden, and Warsaw. In the United Kingdom, hate crimes spiked after the Brexit referendum and in the USA, there has been a steady rise in hate crimes against African-Americans, Muslims, immigrants and members of the LGBT ...

  • Communists and Their Victims: The Quest for Justice in the Czech Republic
           by Roman David (review)
    • Abstract: Communists and Their Victims is the product of over two decades of work on the topic by the author. Although, as the subtitle suggests, the book is an important country study, the work’s ambition and accomplishments go well beyond that. Professor David’s expertise is not merely in his country of origin, but includes Poland, Hungary, and Croatia, as well as South Africa and South Korea. Unlike some of us who dabble in the topic of transitional justice from an armchair, Professor David has lived in, and conducted empirical research in this wide array of countries. This wealth of experience has added to his conceptual approach to the subject and has sharpened his tools of analysis. The result is a well-informed ... Read More

  • Strategies of Compliance with the European Court of Human Rights: Rational
           Choice within Normative Constraints by Andreas von Staden (review)
    • Abstract: The European Court of Human Rights is one of the most prominent international courts in the world and, by most accounts, one of the most influential. This impressive book details the extent of compliance with Court judgments by all member states and the nuanced nature of that compliance by Great Britain and Germany. It also seeks to explain these compliance patterns by drawing on both rationalist and constructivist theoretical ideas.In brief, Andreas von Staden suggests that compliance with the court’s judgments is quite high, though this question clearly turns on what one means by compliance and how one measures it. The most reasonable measure is to examine the determinations of Committee of Ministers of the ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Japanese military’s sexual enslavement of women during World War II, also known as the “comfort women,” is a key example of gender-based war crime that has not been properly addressed in both national and international arenas. In her book Embodied Reckonings: “Comfort Women,” Performance, and Transpacific Redress, Elizabeth Son provides a rich documentation of how survivors of the Japanese military sexual slavery and their supporters have attempted to redress the “comfort women” history through various forms of performances. One of the central themes of Son’s book is the role of performance in enacting “restitution for grievously unspeakable violence outside state parameters” and the “relationship between art ...

  • Man or Monster' The Trial of a Khmer Rouge Torturer by Alexander Laban
           Hinton, and: The Justice Facade: Trials of Transition in Cambodia by
           Alexander Laban Hinton (review)
    • Abstract: In the summer of 1979 I was asked to go to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to give an opinion as an expert witness on genocide at the upcoming trial of Pol Pot and Ieng Sary, leaders of the Khmer Rouge government that had recently been displaced in Cambodia. This proceeding stood to be the first time the crime defined in the Genocide Convention of 1949 would be prosecuted in a court of law. The Khmer Rouge, which took power in Cambodia in 1975, still held a small sector of Cambodia, from which it was waging a guerrilla war against the new government, which was made up of dissident elements within the Khmer Rouge who had revolted against it, backed by the Army of Vietnam.The trial bore a certain aspect of unreality since Pol ...

  • The Reparative Effects of Human Rights Trials by Rosario Figari Layús
           (review)
    • Abstract: Clear, easy-reading and pedagogic, The Reparative Effects of Human Rights Trials by Rosario Figari Layús unearths a core question: why do we punish'When dealing with perpetrators of mass human rights violations, prosecutions have been largely approached as a tool for retribution, i.e. to hold perpetrators accountable for their acts.1 However, Figari Layús introduces a new perspective with the potential to broaden the role of domestic trials and build transitional justice as a comprehensive process. She goes beyond the perpetrators’ fate and presents prosecutions as a basis for the non-repetition of human rights violations and victims’ redress.To show the multidimensional potential of domestic prosecutions, the book ...

  • Resilience and Contagion: Invoking Human Rights in African HIV Advocacy by
           Kristi Kenyon (review)
    • Abstract: Like many who teach introductory courses on human rights, I follow a unit on the historical and philosophical origins of the idea with a series of units organized around specific critiques, including the feminist, economic, and cultural critiques. By the time my idealistic and enthusiastic students are done learning about the gender and class biases built into the human rights framework and come to recognize how human rights are put in service of colonial and neoliberal projects, they are often quite deflated. I could compound the issue by asking my students to consider if we are at the “the end times”1 or “twilight”2 of the human rights era, but I prefer to stave off despair by turning to a section on health and ...

  • In the Name of Women’s Rights: The Rise of Femonationalism by Sara
           R. Farris (review)
    • Abstract: Sara Farris’ In the Name of Women’s Rights illustrates how far-right nationalist movements in the Netherlands, France, and Italy promote Islamophobic laws and policies under the guise of protecting Nonwestern and Muslim women from Islam and Nonwestern men.1 She coins the term “femonationalism” as a shorthand for “feminist and femocratic nationalism” to describe how otherwise gender-conservative nationalist groups co-opt feminist and human rights concepts of gender equality to denounce Islam and marginalize Muslim men.2 Her argument contests the Western exceptionalist assumption that Nonwestern countries oppress women, particularly through religion. Western exceptionalism ignores the persistence of gender ... Read More

  • Gender, Sexuality, and the Cold War: A Global Perspective ed. by Philip E.
           Muehlenbeck (review)
    • Abstract: In order to make the most of our understanding of the past, we must take steps to fully comprehend the challenges and nuances of history. Philip Muehlenbeck’s edited collection Gender, Sexuality, and the Cold War,1 recognizes the importance of this and makes the effort to analyze the Cold War era from a gender and sexuality perspective. The Cold War was an event and time period that shaped cultures, and decisions made during that era were also influenced by and in reaction to, culture at that time. To this point, Meuhlenbeck and the authors understand that “we cannot effectively analyze decision making at the very top without taking into account the cultural assumptions of the decision makers.”2 Additionally, it is ...
