  • Rescuing Human Rights Law From International Legalism and its Critics
    • Abstract: The international human rights project everywhere seems in retreat. In December 2014, the International Criminal Court (ICC) dismissed its case against sitting President Uhuru Kenyatta and suspended its investigations in the Sudan, forfeiting the cause of many pro-justice advocates in Africa.1 In the United States these developments were overshadowed by the coincident release of the US Senate’s report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. The report inspired an openly partisan debate on the “justified uses” of torture—a set of acts that is unquestionably prohibited under international law.2 Some observers called for the prosecution of those responsible, and others dug in to defend them as ...

  • Measuring Discrimination Against LGBTQ People: A Cross-National Analysis
    • Abstract: Homosexuality will never be tolerated and in fact will attract the ultimate penalty since it is intended to bring humanity to an inglorious extinction. We will fight these vermins called Homosexuals or gays the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes; if not more aggressively. We will therefore not accept any friendship, aid or any other gesture that is conditional on accepting Homosexuals or L.G.B.T. as they are now baptised by the powers that promote them. As far as I am concerned, L.G.B.T can only stand for Leprosy, Gonorrhoea, Bacteria and Tuberculosis; all of which are detrimental to human existence.Issues regarding homosexuality and gay rights and discrimination are some of the most contested and ...

  • Is Grassroots Justice a Viable Alternative to Impunity?: The Case of the
           Iran People’s Tribunal
    • Abstract: What happens when the institutions responsible for doing justice fail the victims of mass-atrocities? The emergence of the contemporary global justice system is a significant advancement over the culture of impunity that prevailed for so long. The proliferation of trials—whether before international or national criminal jurisdictions—and transitional justice mechanisms—ranging from truth commissions to traditional rituals—have gradually transformed the accountability paradigm into an inescapable feature of contemporary political discourse. Of course, while global justice is now a popular demand, it still remains a fledgling venture, at the margins of power realities. Furthermore, significant gaps remain, especially ... Read More

  • Children’s Rights Implementation as a Multi-Level Governance Process
    • Abstract: The world has commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in November 2014.1 Only a month later, two children’s rights activists from South Asia, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.2 Both laureates have “contributed to the development of important international conventions on children’s rights.”3 Children’s rights conventions have indeed been pathbreaking in several respects: on the one hand, they promote the concept of the child as an individual and autonomous rights-holder. On the other hand, they achieved the widest ratification rate among all human rights treaties in the UN system. But, have they led to an overall ... Read More

  • The Rights of History: Enlightenment and Human Rights
    • Abstract: Lately, the study of human rights has become a dangerous ground for historians. There are multiple reasons behind this found inside as well as outside of history. Internal reasons may be identified in the old, and yet unsolved, opposition between the historians focusing on cultural relativism and historicism, on the one side, and those focusing on the cosmopolitan and universalistic dimension of rights, on the other. However, the external reasons can be deemed more important.In his celebrated Le Sottisier, Gustave Flaubert ironically defined history as a dangerous knowledge for teachers and students;1 yet, he was not fully aware in his time of all the rivalries and pretentions that scholars from other fields like ...

  • Conservative at Birth: The Creation and Paradoxes of United States Human
           Rights Policy During World War II
    • Abstract: On 6 January 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered a somber State of the Union address to a concerned Congress that had witnessed Nazi Germany’s conquest of most of Western Europe. Ever the careful politician, Roosevelt wanted simultaneously to rally the public behind expanded aid to Great Britain without fueling isolationist sentiments that such assistance would ignite war with Germany. He turned to the rhetorical language of freedom to achieve his twin goals. “At no previous time,” he warned, “has American security been as seriously threatened from without as it is today. … The democratic way of life is at this moment being directly assailed in every part of the world—assailed either by arms or by ...

  • Who Pursues the Perpetrators?: State Cooperation with the ICC
    • Abstract: In the decade since its founding, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has initiated legal proceedings in twenty-one cases across eight situations, or human rights crises, and built a membership of 123 states. Despite early growing pains and persistent critiques of its work, the Court has established itself as an integral part of contemporary international criminal law. Yet the ICC, like many international human rights tribunals and treaties, has weak enforcement powers. It lacks any real authority to enforce its arrest warrants or requests for information and has no police force or military to capture suspects. Instead, the ICC depends almost entirely on state cooperation in order to bring suspected perpetrators ... Read More

  • Deterring Torture: The Preventive Power of Criminal Law and its Promise
           for Inhibiting State Abuses
    • Abstract: Immediately following the terror attacks of 11 September 2001, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) requested authority to detain and interrogate suspected terrorists, an authority that was quickly granted.1 By December of 2002, reporters were exposing rumors that United States government agents were using stress positions and other physically coercive methods to gather intelligence from detainees seized in the War on Terror.2 In 2004, pictures of detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib detention facility became public, as did the first of the legal memos, written for the White House, authorizing the use of torture.3 By 2006, the field of human rights scholarship was flooded with articles and reports attempting to prove the ...

  • Five Ideas to Fight For: How Our Freedom is Under Threat and Why It
           Matters by Anthony Lester (review)
    • Abstract: This important book was evidently motivated by its subtitle. The author sees the principal threat to human rights as the manifesto pledge of the incumbent UK government to “scrap” the Human Rights Act, the 1998 statute by which the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) was incorporated into UK law and so made justiciable in the national courts.Lord Lester of Herne Hill, QC, is probably the UK’s most eminent human rights barrister. As a member of the House of Lords (for the Liberal Democratic Party), he is also a legislator. In earlier days as a Labour Party supporter, he was an adviser to the Wilson government of the mid-1970s. He was also the founding chair of Interights, a British human rights NGO that sadly ...

  • The Law of Refugee Status by James C. Hathaway & Michelle Foster
           (review)
    • Abstract: Twenty-five years ago, James Hathaway wrote the book on refugee law. There were and are other excellent treatises, notably by Guy-Goodwin Gill (now with Jane McAdam). But Hathaway’s The Law of Refugee Status (LRS) was singular in scope, reach, and timing. As a law professor in my first year of teaching, I welcomed the arrival of a book that jumpstarted my nascent interest in refugee law. LRS masterfully situated the refugee definition in its historical context, advanced an integrated normative framework, and provided careful, reasoned analysis of the elements of the refugee definition. I could not imagine a more ideal introduction to the field. At virtually the same moment, Canada’s two year old Immigration and ... Read More

  • Where are the Lawyers, the Activists, the Claimants, and the Experts?
    • Abstract: In this diplomatic history, Steven L. B. Jensen, a Ph.D. Researcher at the Danish Institute for Human Rights, succeeds in showing how human rights diplomacy at the United Nations in the 1960s paved the way for the development of international human rights legal norms in the 1970s,1 a point he drives home clearly in Chapter 6. His evidence for the 1960s’ connection to the 1970s—which revisionist historians of human rights, following Samuel Moyn’s polemical book, The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History (2010), have overemphasized as the “moment” of their breakthrough—builds throughout the previous chapters. This “moment” of human rights history is overemphasized because—although undeniable changes do occur in the ... Read More

  • Internationalism in the Age of Nationalism by Glenda Sluga (review)
    • Abstract: The history of internationalism tends to be written apart from the history of nationalism, and little wonder, since the two ideas have often been conceived as opposites. Building on a growing literature challenging that dichotomy, Glenda Sluga has written a history of twentieth-century internationalism that ties it to the history of nationalism or, more accurately, recovers its entanglement therewith. She also recovers the scope and influence of internationalism in the twentieth century. Internationalism has, until very recently, received much less attention from historians than nationalism. In fact, internationalism has been dismissed as utopian (even when it was realist) and nationalism has been taken seriously ... Read More

  • The Seductions of Quantification: Measuring Human Rights, Gender Violence,
           and Sex Trafficking by Sally Engle Merry (review)
    • Abstract: Sally Engle Merry’s The Seductions of Quantification: Measuring Human Rights, Gender Violence, and Sex Trafficking describes and critiques the process of producing and analyzing numerical indicators of human rights, gender violence, and sex trafficking. She believes that the process of quantification is highly political and ideological, and that quantitative measurement systems constitute a form of power, incorporating theories about social change in their design. She emphasizes that measurement systems are developed by powerful organizations, and the organizational value biases behind those systems are rarely explicit. Quantification itself contributes to a “myth of objectivity,” meaning that the truth of most ... Read More

  • East West Street: On the Origins of “Genocide” and “Crimes Against
           Humanity” by Philippe Sands (review)
    • Abstract: Philippe Sands may not be the first person to look at the lives and teachings of Hersch Lauterpacht and Raphael Lemkin, examine their seminal contributions to international human rights law, or note that they both attended the same (to North Americans, unfamiliar) law school in East Galicia.1 But a confluence of several coincidences led Sands, a law professor and practicing human rights attorney, to see the promise of an extraordinary story. Or rather, the promise of East West Street’s several intersecting extraordinary stories.The chain of coincidences began with an invitation for Sands to lecture at Jan Kazimierz University Law School in the city now known as Lviv, in the Ukraine where Lauterpacht and Lemkin ...

  • The Idea of a Human Rights Museum eds. by Karen Busby et al. (review)
    • Abstract: In 2003 a Winnipeg businessman and philanthropist, Israel Asper, launched an effort to garner financial support for the creation of a new museum: the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) to be located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. When Asper died his daughter, Gail, took up the effort to raise the needed funds and to help clarify the aims and scope of this new entity. The Canadian and Manitoban governments also pledged money for this new endeavor, which planned to focus on Canadian human rights history and challenges. With such an ambitious focus, there were high hopes and expectations from various groups who expected their stories of human rights issues to have a prominent place in the new institution. Finding a way ... Read More

  • United States Law and Policy on Transitional Justice: Principles,
           Politics, and Pragmatics by Zachary D. Kaufman (review)
    • Abstract: In his new book United States Law and Policy on Transitional Justice: Principles, Politics, and Pragmatics, Zachary D. Kaufman establishes a novel framework to explain how and why the United States government (USG) has made decisions in the aftermath of mass atrocities. His framework is based as much on politics and pragmatics as it is on legal tradition and commitment to norms. In his introduction, Kaufman outlines his central research questions, which he addresses through relevant case studies throughout the book. The book centers around two such questions: (1) Why did the USG support particular transitional justice (TJ) options in the immediate aftermaths of World War II and the Cold War? and (2) What ...

  • Sexual Violence During War and Peace: Gender, Power, and Post Conflict
           Justice: Gender, Power, and Post-Conflict Justice in Peru by Jelke Boesten
           (review)
    • Abstract: In her book Sexual Violence During War and Peace Gender, Power, and Post Conflict Justice, Jelke Boesten exposes the blurred lines between wartime and peacetime rape by presenting the case study of Peru.This ambitious book attempts to cover quite a bit of territory as it approaches the problem of sexual violence from many directions including relying on a remarkably wide range of sources to triangulate a qualitative analysis of the author’s original research and secondary sources, including Peruvian novels.Building on established critical theories regarding sexual violence, Boesten makes her contribution by sharing rich information contained in the archives of the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission ...
