  • Systematic Review of the Causes of Latin American States' Compliance With
           International Human Rights Law
    • Abstract: Louis Henkin notoriously asserted "almost all nations observe almost all principles of international law and almost all of their obligations almost all of the time."1 A similar affirmation was made earlier by Hedley Bull, who stated that "[i]f it were possible or meaningful to conduct a quantitative study of obedience to the rules of international law, it might be expected to show that most states obey most agreed rules of international law most of the time."2 On the same note, Abram Chayes and Antonia Handler Chayes stated "[c]ompliance is the normal organizational presumption."3 If this underlying assumption is embraced,4 then it is necessary to question why do states actually comply and more specifically, why do ...

  • Who are the Victims of Crimes Against Cultural Heritage'
    • Abstract: Cultural heritage and its products and processes have prompted the emergence of new norms and new actors in international law.1 In this global cultural landscape, social actors—including local communities, minority groups, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and "the international community"—seek recognition, if not outright international legal status, which makes them all active participants in the transnational law-making process. Cultural heritage is also emerging as a shared concern and interest of humanity, with the desire for international law to safeguard it in its material and living conditions and to protect the communities that create, perform, and maintain it.2 The anthropocentric approach to ...

  • "O War, Thou Son of Hell!": Grasping the Carnage in Syria
    • Abstract: "O, War, Thou Son of Hell!" Shakespeare's cry from Henry VI echoes across the Syria conflict, now grinding through its eighth year. Rising state violence, mobilization of rebel forces, and the clampdown and chaos that followed metastasized into what the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees called "the biggest humanitarian and refugee crisis of our time."1 It is likely that hundreds of thousands of people have died. Some 12 million Syrians—half the population—have been driven from their homes, either as refugees or internally displaced persons.2 Many others remain trapped in inaccessible or besieged areas. The direct effects of the war—crude urban combat, punishing artillery fire, air bombardment, chemical ... Read More

  • "The Invisible Man": H. G. Wells and Human Rights During the Interwar
           Period
    • Abstract: In early 1940, H. G. Wells—the so-called father of science fiction, and author of The Invisible Man, War of the Worlds and The Time Machine—published The Rights of Man, or, What are we Fighting for' Dismayed by Europe's descent once again into war, The Rights of Man called for "a profound reconstruction of the methods of human living"1 through "a code of fundamental human rights … made easily accessible to everyone."2 Wells then employed his fame and connections to secure the widest possible circulation of The Rights of Man, with the work reputedly published in more than thirty different languages and copies finding their way into the hands of political leaders such as Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), Mahatma Ghandi ... Read More

  • More Than Words: Legal Professional Activism and the Prevention of Torture
           in South Korea
    • Abstract: Where-ever law ends, tyranny begins.The norms of human rights have spread across the globe since the end of World War II through a series of international treaties. With the diffusion of human rights norms, it has become harder for sovereign states to infringe upon human rights.2 Nonetheless, scholars continue to express cynicism about the substantive outcomes of the international human rights regime. Previous studies have found that governments often sign and ratify international treaties to superficially signal their commitment to international norms without the intention to comply with them.3In addition to the international norms of human rights, scholars have identified democracy as a critical domestic factor ...

  • Human Rights Under "Democratic" Pressure: Navigating a Path Between Truth
           and Politics
    • Abstract: "Speaking Truth to Power" has, in recent years, become a favored refrain of the human rights movement.1 The sentiment—captured here in shorthand—is that although they seek to alter the operation of political institutions and the behavior of political actors, human rights advocates eschew the power dimension that characterizes political contestation and claims-making; instead they equip themselves with a qualitatively different device: truth. In this context, the most obvious meaning of truth is factual truth—and specifically, the facts about what states do—but which they conceal, or at least fail to make transparent, such as systematically discriminating against certain groups, failing to provide basic education ...

    • Abstract: To mark the seventieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Special Rapporteur in the Field of Cultural Rights, Karima Bennoune, published a report that stresses the centrality of universalism in human rights, puts forward universalism as a prerequisite for cultural rights and calls "for foundational renewal and vigorous defence of this principle."1 The report strongly urges states, academics, and civil society to reinforce the message of universality in human rights debates.2At several points in past decades, the universality debate of human rights appeared to be settled. Starting with the dominance of the liberal view of human rights, critical approaches to universality were fiercely ... Read More

  • Is Religion the Enemy of Human Rights'
    • Abstract: Whether religion is a friend or enemy of human rights is usually treated as a philosophical question.1 Some argue that human rights come from God or at least are grounded in religious faith. Others have noted that the ideologies of religion and human rights differ in their sources, the bases of their authority, and even in their substantive norms, so the teachings of religious organizations support some human rights norms and conflict with others.2This article provides empirical evidence about the effect of societal religiosity on respect for human rights. Building on Louis Henkin's perspective, we ask whether a higher level of societal religiosity in a particular country actually leads to more respect for some ... Read More

  • Law's Trials: The Performance of Legal Institutions in the US "War on
           Terror" by Richard L. Abel (review)
    • Abstract: The human rights community has long struggled with a paradox—a belief that justice will prevail in the midst of human rights abuses, yet one tempered by a sobering reality that suggests otherwise. In the aptly titled, Law's Trials, Richard Abel studies how legal institutions in the United States functioned during the "War on Terror."1 While this meticulously detailed study documents hundreds of legal proceedings since 9/11, it is really a broader critique about law and justice, and an acknowledgment that these two concepts are not always coterminous.Law's Trials is a sequel of sorts. It follows Abel's concurrent study, Law's Wars, which examined five "terrains of contestation" in the "War on Terror:" Abu Ghraib ... Read More

  • The Americanization of Human Rights: Iranian, African, and Chinese Lives
           in American Autobiography by Sunčica Klaas (review)
    • Abstract: The United States has a paradoxical relationship with the modern human rights movement. On the one hand, the US positions itself as progenitor and champion. Eleanor Roosevelt chaired the drafting committee for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and Human Rights Watch, arguably one of the world's most important human rights organizations, evolved from the US-based Helsinki Watch. On the other hand, the US is an international outlier that has refused to ratify key international treaties from the Rome Statute to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The ideology of exceptionalism makes the US a selectively fierce defender of the movement, quick to identify atrocities abroad but—in ... Read More

  • Conflict-Related Violence Against Women: Transforming Transition by
           Aisling Swaine (review)
    • Abstract: In 2000, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1325 on the subject of women, peace and security, calling "on all parties to armed conflict to take special measures to protect women and girls from gender-based violence, particularly rape and other forms of sexual abuse, and all other forms of violence in situations of armed conflict."1The phenomenon of the mass rape of women in wartime has become a subject of increasingly intensified concern over the past two decades, expressed in diplomatic initiatives and judicial developments, notably war crimes and crimes against humanity convictions for rape and forced marriage handed down by international criminal tribunals.2 The understanding that the ...

  • For the Love of Humanity: The World Tribunal on Iraq by Ayça
           Çubukçu (review)
    • Abstract: For the Love of Humanity: The World Tribunal on Iraq is a first-person account of a citizens' tribunal, authored by one of the tribunal's organizers, and held in twenty public sessions across the world between 2003 and 2005 to assess the 2003 military actions that brought the overthrow of the government of Iraq.As Ayça Çubukçu explains, political activists from various countries convened in Istanbul in fall 2003 to plot the course of sessions to be organized on the model of court hearings that would shine a critical spotlight on the invasion of Iraq of earlier that year. The organizers were reacting to the fact, as indicated, that despite a widespread understanding that the reasons given for the invasion were ... Read More

  • Fragile Families: Foster Care, Immigration, and Citizenship by Naomi
           Glenn-Levin Rodriguez (review)
    • Abstract: Conducting her extensive and transnational fieldwork in San Diego and Tijuana, young anthropologist Naomi Glenn-Levin Rodriguez succeeds in illustrating the complicated stories pertaining to foster children in her volume Fragile Families: Foster Care, Immigration, and Citizenship. She describes the relationship between foster children and multiple actors, including their foster families, social workers, the child welfare system, immigration officials, and those children's biological parents who are unable to obtain legal status. Interviewing with the different actors, Rodriguez presents readers with an internal perspective of how citizenship, deportation, and other legal issues affect adopted Hispanic children's ...
