  • Hijacking Human Rights: Neoliberalism, the New Historiography, and the End
           of the Third World
    • Abstract: An adequate historiography will, of course, . . . locate the originating languages of human rights far beyond the European spacetime.1Writing in 1978 about "the priority which member countries of the Council of Europe and other democracies today attach to human rights," British Foreign Minister David Owen observed that "[f]rom the beginning of the decade developments in international affairs . . . have raised the profile of human rights . . . . This has been a sufficiently rapid, even dramatic, development to create the impression for some that peoples and Governments have only recently stumbled on the importance of human rights."2 Famously, much of what has been called "the new historiography" of human rights ...

  • Bearing Witness to Atrocity Crimes: Photography and International Law
    • Abstract: In her seminal work, On Photography, Susan Sontag explores the unique contribution of photography to the world, concluding that it introduced a new visual code which expands "our notions of what is worth looking at and what we have a right to observe."1 To photograph means to "appropriate the thing photographed," and to put "oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge—and, therefore, like power."2 Tension exists between a view of photography as depicting primarily a world of fact where experience is mediated in a raw, direct, and unpolluted manner, against the idea that while "visual images can be a window into other people's lives, it is not necessarily a transparent window."3 The advent ...

  • Privatization and Economic and Social Rights
    • Abstract: Privatization is an ever more dominant model of economic and social rights (ESR) realization. Contracting out, public-private partnerships, and other approaches by which the private sector takes responsibility for, or supports the state in, delivering ESR-related goods and services are being advanced aggressively at both the national and supranational levels, with international financial institutions playing an especially influential role. Thus far, however, there has been relatively little attention paid to privatization in ESR scholarship and practice, resulting in a significant lacuna from both a normative and an empirical perspective. This gap is perhaps most striking—and worrying—in relation to the work of ... Read More

  • Women's Human Rights: From Progress to Transformation, An Intersectional
           Response to Martha Nussbaum
    • Abstract: In Kimberlé Crenshaw's seminal article which coined the term "intersectionality," she imagines discrimination as a basement.1 The basement consists of stacks of people standing feet on shoulders. At the bottom are those who are disadvantaged in all possible ways on the basis of their race, sex, gender, class, caste, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, etc; while those who were disadvantaged by a single characteristic alone inhabit the ceiling. Above the ceiling is the floor on which everyone who is not disadvantaged in any way resides. Crenshaw argues that when a hatch is developed for the disadvantaged people in the basement to escape to the floor above, it is generally those who lie ... Read More

  • Translating Victims' "Right to Reparations" Into Practice: A Framework for
           Assessing the Implementation of Reparations Programs From a Bottom-Up
           Perspective
    • Abstract: With the advent of human rights promotion in the late 1980s, the demand that the state should provide remedy for past human rights violations and take action to prevent the recurrence of civil war and state repression evolved on the international level. In this context, academia and practice alike attribute wide-ranging effects to transitional justice and the establishment of transitional justice instruments, namely tribunals, truth commissions and reparations programs, while an empirical assessment of these effects has proved difficult. This article argues that the effectiveness of transitional justice depends greatly on victims' perceptions of the respective instrument and their experiences with taking part in ... Read More

  • Decoupling International Agreements from Domestic Policy: The State and
           Soft Repression
    • Abstract: Over the past twenty years, the dramatic shift in attention by activists and scholars toward international institutions has been predicated, in part, by the potential for transnational mobilization to achieve global social change. Yet despite a host of successes in institutionalizing new international norms, and a dramatic expansion in states' adoption of UN agreements, mobilization efforts often fail to deliver on compliance within national contexts. This failure creates an unintended "hypocrisy paradox" for weak states,1 who, attracted to international agreements, perceive the ability to strengthen their legitimacy by ratifying new norms—even though they may have no intention or capacity to implement them.2 In ...

  • On the Human Rights Question
    • Abstract: Critiques of human rights abound.1 This is by no means a recent development,2 but the very ubiquity of the language of human rights in our age,3 means that a plethora of critiques of human rights have proliferated over the last forty years. While it is true that such critiques arise from various points along the ideological and political spectrum—at times making strange bedfellows of critical theorists and reactionary politicians—what we might, broadly, term "the left" has provided particularly fertile ground for critical accounts of human rights.4 Notwithstanding these critiques, and a recent spate of declarations about the demise of human rights,5 social movements around the world continue to frame their ...

  • Politics or Pragmatism' The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda
           and the Burying of the Investigation into the Assassination of President
           Juvénal Habyarimana
    • Abstract: A persistent rumor about the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR)1 is that politics played a role in the decision in 1997 of then Chief Prosecutor Louise Arbour to end the investigation into the assassination of Rwandan President Juvénal Habyarimana. As is well known, the assassination on 6 April 1994 of the country's longtime Hutu president triggered two simultaneous events: a resumption of the civil war between the government army and the Tutsi dominated rebel Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF); and the genocide by Hutu extremists against Rwanda's Tutsi minority. The failure to identify those responsible for lighting the Rwandan fire, and thereby resolve one of the big enigmas of recent African history ... Read More

  • Shahram Khosravi's Ethnographies of Precarious Lives in Iran: The
           Ayatollahs' State Merges into Global Neoliberalism
    • Abstract: In 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini's regime tried to de-secularize the educational system and turn the young into devotees who would duly follow the Shiite clerical instructions, just as their near ancestors had seemingly done. Khomeini's re-Islamization has failed—understandable against the background of the enduring changes that capitalist modernity had already created. The parents of the targeted middle class families—the normative trendsetters for the nation, then and now—have largely prevailed. As a teenager, Shahram Khosravi went through the process. A professor at Stockholm University, he is distinguished among a few urban anthropologists who have conducted fieldwork in Iran. His book Young and Defiant in Tehran ... Read More

  • Sovereignty in Exile: A Saharan Liberation Movement Governs by Alice
           Wilson (review)
    • Abstract: How does attending a wedding or strolling around an informal market in a refugee camp provide insights into capital-letter political concepts such as revolution, statehood, sovereignty, governance, and democracy' To what extent are these core notions broadened or unsettled by the everyday micro-politics of the anomalous yet normalized "state of exception"1 that protracted exile constitutes' More specifically, and puzzlingly enough for politics and law scholars educated in the indissoluble marriage between sovereignty and statehood, can there be sovereignty beyond and below the state' Can sovereignty or "projects" thereof, be found in decentered extraterritorial, and liminal refugee settings' Or in the doings of ...

  • Children, Autonomy and the Courts: Beyond the Right to be Heard by Aoife
           Daly (review)
    • Abstract: The passing of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in 1989 moved children's rights into the political agenda. The CRC is a core human rights treaty, ratified by 196 states, setting out international human rights standards for children. Two of its aspects dominate the academic literature. One relates to its implementation. Most countries do not directly incorporate the CRC, but interpret and frame laws with the Convention in mind, which leads to inconsistency. The other relates to the meaning and effectiveness of its articles. Parties to the CRC are guided by four key principles: Article 6 protects the child's right to life and development, Article 2 prohibits discrimination. Article 3 ensures that ... Read More

  • Human Rights in Global Health: Rights-Based Governance for a Globalizing
           World by Benjamin Mason Meier & Lawrence O. Gostin (review)
    • Abstract: Institutions matter. This is the key message of the volume on Human Rights in Global Health edited by Benjamin Meier and Lawrence Gostin. With a renewed and comprehensive vision of human rights after the end of the Cold War and wide-ranging calls for entering the era of implementation of human rights,1 the inextricable link between human rights and global health has become generally accepted. Global health issues demand complex solutions, solutions that depend on a range of actors. They depend on global health governance. The encounter between these two realms—human rights and global health—places international institutions in the center of dynamics, demonstrating their strategic role for the realization of the ...

  • East West Street: On the Origins of "Genocide" and "Crimes Against
           Humanity" by Philippe Sands (review)
    • Abstract: What is the difference between genocide and crimes against humanity' And does the difference matter' East West Street addresses the evolution and implementation of these legal concepts in an unusual hybrid form: a multiple biography of four men who never formally met although their lives were deeply entwined.1 They were Hans Frank, Hitler's personal lawyer and Governor General of Poland during the Nazi occupation; Hersch Lauterpacht, professor of international law at Cambridge and judge at the International Court of Justice; Rafael Lemkin, who coined the word genocide and initiated the Genocide Convention; and Leon Buchholz, Philippe Sands' own grandfather. East West Street is also a kind of scholarly whodunit that ... Read More

  • Disability, Human Rights, and Information Technology ed. by Jonathan Lazar
           & Michael Ashley Stein (review)
    • Abstract: How does advanced digital technology affect disabled people's lives' Jonathan Lazar and Michael Ashley Stein's recently edited work Disability, Human Rights, and Information Technology offers an insightful answer. In this volume, multiple authors contribute their expertise to facilitate our exploration of the impact of hi-tech devices on disabled people's daily lives. Regarding the interactions between information technology (IT) and disability, scholarship within the past two decades has intensively focused on the rise of the Internet and its aftermaths. For example, according to Susanne M. Bruyère, William E. Erickson, and Sara Van Looy, in order to lessen workplace barriers for disabled persons we should ... Read More

  • The Sociology of Human Rights: An Introduction by Mark Frezzo (review)
    • Abstract: The Sociology of Human Rights: An Introduction offers an alternative perspective to the traditional approaches and understanding from the growing complexities of human rights as a field of study. As such, this book is well situated to help transform this field. Within each chapter, Mark Frezzo provides a comprehensive discussion of the many dimensions related to human rights. In addition, Frezzo suggests that, until recently, sociology and human rights have not been investigated together. Due to the growing complexities and challenges facing the world, Frezzo insists that it is important to place the study of human rights within a sociological framework. For example, though human rights belong to every person, the ... Read More
