  • Emotional Diplomacy and Human Rights at the United Nations
    • Abstract: After almost two decades of Western, and United States, diplomatic failures in the human rights and humanitarian spheres of the General Assembly, incoming US Ambassador Daniel Patrick Moynihan located part of the cause. Consumed by more material questions, the State Department simply did not care about fighting in the human rights space.1 US diplomacy in the United Nations, a global symbolic theatre, had neglected an evanescent, intangible aspect of the debate—emotion. These qualities had been observed from the earliest days of the program by US Delegate Eleanor Roosevelt and her colleagues. In a 1951 address, Roosevelt had lamented that "we are very stupid sometimes. I think we are so lacking in sensitivity to ... Read More

  • Against Standardization of Memory
    • Abstract: What is the purpose of memorialization? According to the British dictionary, memorialization simply means "to honor or commemorate" or "to present or address a memorial to." The UN report "Memorialization Processes" states that "memorialization should be a means of combating injustice and promoting reconciliation," and that memorialization gears "not only towards the past (recalling events, recognizing and honoring victims, and enabling stories to be related), but equally to the present (healing processes and rebuilding of trust between communities) and the future (preventing further violence through education and awareness-raising)."1 The US Institute for Peace memorialization report (2007) ascribes to ...

  • Cultural Harm and Engaging the Limits of a Right to Cultural Identity
    • Abstract: Cultural diversity remains a key challenge for the justification and application of universal human rights norms. Many human rights theorists and practitioners insist that the continuing normative legitimacy of human rights norms depends upon the doctrine's capacity to accommodate a very broad range of culturally-based ways of being and believing. In order to enjoy genuinely universal credibility, human rights are required to affirm the manifest diversity of human life, which, in turn, entails a thorough engagement with the differing empirical realities of such life. A core component of this affirmation of diversity is the defense of the right to cultural identity. So-called cultural rights have attracted renewed ... Read More

  • Taking the Right to Health Seriously: Implications for Health Systems,
           Courts, and Achieving Universal Health Coverage
    • Abstract: [Virtually] [e]very country in the world has ratified at least one treaty that specifies obligations regarding the right to health. Under [such treaties] states have an obligation to adopt appropriate measures to realize the right to health . . . and the pursuit of UHC is crucial to this endeavor. . . . [A]pproaches . . . based on fairness or rights[] can endorse and encourage the urgent pursuit of UHC.1Law has long been recognized to function as a central determinant of health, for good and ill, not merely through courts resolving disputes, but also by structuring institutions and orienting social norms, including those that define the contours of deviance in a society. Many, if not most, major public health ... Read More

  • Progress or Prevarication?: The Move Toward the Establishment of a Human
           Rights Commission in Japan
    • Abstract: At the end of the Cold War, when many communist and other totalitarian states embarked on a process of democratization, human rights received a renewed recognition as important building blocks for democracies. In the context of this development, the vision emerged that the creation of a culture of human rights could be propelled by a new kind of national organization mandated to monitor and raise an awareness and understanding of human rights.1 Towards the end of building this institutional infrastructure, the representatives of several national human rights institutions (NHRIs) convened at a workshop in Paris, France, in October 1991, setting up a framework of principles that would govern the establishment and ...

  • Torture and Ill-Treatment Under Perceived: Human Rights Documentation and
           the Poor
    • Abstract: Torture has been one of the dominant international human rights issues of the early twenty-first century. Inevitably, human rights practitioners have only been able to document the experiences of a small minority of survivors. However, we argue the experiences of people living in poverty have disproportionately and systematically failed to enter the world of human rights documentation.Documentation acts as the eyes and ears of the human rights movement. The techniques and assumptions of documentation help set the parameters for how human rights organizations and practitioners perceive and act in the world. This article, therefore addresses the question of how human rights documentation seeks to know and respond to ... Read More

    • Abstract: The United Nations Principles to Combat Impunity list four obligations of states in response to massive human rights violations: to prosecute the perpetrators, to provide reparations to the victims, to tell the truth about the violations, and to guarantee their non-recurrence.1 The obligation to guarantee non-recurrence is the least developed category of the measures to combat impunity. The 1997 version of the Principles to Combat Impunity devote only six out of forty-two principles to guarantees of non-recurrence; the 2005 updated version of the Principles devote only four out of thirty-eight principles to this obligation. Not surprisingly, these four principles come last in the Principles to Combat Impunity. ... Read More

  • Cheap Talk on Food: Party Politics in India and the Challenge of
           Implementing the Right to Food
    • Abstract: Access to food is central to personal economic wellbeing. Voting aimed at punishing or rewarding elected officials for their perceived or actual role in managing the economy can play a pivotal role in shaping how political actors talk about food in the run-up to elections and can influence politicians' willingness to make food policy reforms a priority in the course of governing. This article identifies the phenomenon of "cheap talk" on food, which occurs when politicians who are out of power trumpet the importance of food for the poor, but once in power allow food to be eclipsed by other priorities.Cheap talk on food is pervasive in India, the world's largest democracy and a site of considerable food insecurity. ...

  • Gender, Nutrition and the Human Right to Adequate Food: Toward an
           Inclusive Framework ed. by Anne C. Bellows, Flavio L.S. Valente, Stefanie
           Lemke, and María Daniela Núñez Burbano de Lara (review)
    • Abstract: Why are women and girls overrepresented among victims of violations of the right to food and nutrition? And why have decades of gender mainstreaming efforts not succeeded in addressing this injustice? The answer, the authors argue, is to be found in our collective failure to tackle gender-based violence, and to promote and protect women's right to feed themselves and others through locally defined and self-determined strategies and food systems.In Gender, Nutrition and the Human Right to Adequate Food. Toward an Inclusive Framework, a small group of leading academics—from Syracuse University, the University of Hohenheim, and Coventry University—and human rights practitioners—from the non-governmental organizations ...

  • An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States by Roxanne
           Dunbar-Ortiz (review)
    • Abstract: As part of the ReVisioning American History Series published by Beacon Press, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz provides a valuable addition to the growing number of works inspired by Howard Zinn's A Peoples' History of the U.S.1 She discredits the US origin myth with an extraordinary compilation of evidence documenting centuries of sustained effort to eliminate Native Americans. The author, whose mother was part Indian, does not regard that label as a slur and uses the terms "Indigenous," "Indian," and "Native" interchangeably.US school history texts nurture a false narrative which explains how European settlers discovered a largely uninhabited, primeval wilderness. According to the majority view, essentially a civil religion ... Read More

  • Surviving Forced Disappearance in Argentina and Uruguay: Identity and
           Meaning by Gabriel Gatti (review)
    • Abstract: How to represent the unrepresentable, how to imagine the unimaginable, and how to speak about the unspeakable that the figure of the desaparecido embodies? In his book entitled Surviving Forced Disappearance in Argentina and Uruguay: Identity and Meaning, sociologist Gabriel Gatti attempts to understand the causes and effects of the repressive practice of "making people disappear" which was widely employed during the Latin American military dictatorships in the second half of the last century.Based on extensive fieldwork in Argentina and Uruguay, this study explores the legal figure of the desaparecido by asking how detained and disappeared persons inhabit the categories that international criminal law has ...

  • British Human Rights Organizations and Soviet Dissent, 1965–1985 by
           Mark Hurst (review)
    • Abstract: Mark Hurst's monograph assembles the historical narratives of five British organizations active in the 1960s to 1980s (Keston College, the Women's Campaign for Soviet Jewry, the Working Group on the Internment of Dissenters in Mental Hospitals, the Campaign Against Psychiatric Abuse, and Amnesty International) to analyze how these movements contributed to the defense of Soviet dissidents. He observes that each was driven by motivations whether religious, political, or concern for the international reputation of leading institutions such as the World Psychiatic Association (WPA). They contributed to the building of advocacy practices in the United Kingdom and sought to maintain their impartiality, often at their own ... Read More
