  • The Populist Challenge to Human Rights
    • Authors: Alston P.
      First page: 1
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>The nationalistic, xenophobic, misogynistic, and explicitly anti-human rights agenda of many populist political leaders requires human rights proponents to rethink many longstanding assumptions. There is a need to re-evaluate strategies and broaden outreach, while reaffirming the basic principles on which the human rights movement is founded. Amongst the challenges are the need to achieve more effective synergies between international and local human rights movements and to embrace and assert economic and social rights as human rights rather than as welfare or development objectives. It will be crucial to engage with issues of resources and redistribution, including budgets, tax policy, and fiscal policies. There is a need for collaboration with a broader range of actors, to be more persuasive and less didactic, and to be prepared to break with some of the old certainties. Academics should pay attention to the unintended consequences of their scholarship, and everyone in the human rights movement needs to reflect on the contributions each can make.</span>

  • ‘Food is a Right … Nobody Should Be Starving on Our Streets’:
           Perceptions of Food Bank Usage in a Mid-Sized City in Ontario, Canada
    • Authors: Smith-Carrier T; Ross K, Kirkham J, et al.
      First page: 29
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>The purpose of this exploratory descriptive qualitative study was to explore the experiences of people accessing the food bank in a mid-sized city in Ontario, Canada, and to gain their perspectives on more progressive alternatives to the charitable food bank model. We conducted interviews with 11 clients of the local food bank and two interviews with individuals experiencing food insecurity who do not access food banks (n = 13), and analysed these data using thematic analysis. Findings document participants’ perceptions of the barriers to obtaining an adequate income, the key characteristics of and challenges associated with food banks, and proposed alternatives to the existing model. Using our study data, we document how the extant charitable food system engenders human rights violations; consider what would be required to move from a charitable model to a rights-based approach; and describe how food bank and human rights practitioners can promote a human rights framework in Canadian public policymaking. Through a rights-based framework, food provision moves beyond mere benevolence to positive rights; rights requiring legislative action and legal recourse should they be denied. In seeking alternatives to food banks, we conclude that a national strategy, built on a basic income and human rights framework, is needed. The perpetuation of food banks ensures the charitable food model is preserved, and people remain hungry.</span>

      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>This article analyses the emergence and institutionalization of the figure of the victim in the field of education in the post-conflict context of the Basque Country, Spain. Considering the wider political processes that have given political visibility to victims, we examine their social and political projection in the sphere of Compulsory Secondary Education through the ‘Victims as Educators’ Programme. Our analysis considers three elements: first, the theoretical discussion on ‘sentimental education’ in the field of human rights and, in particular, the tension between reason and feelings; second, the intellectual and political efforts that have gradually shaped government programmes that seek to generate ‘appropriate feelings’ in terms of fostering reconciliation and coexistence; and third, the construction of the figure of the ‘victim as educator’ characterized by a ‘resilient victim’ profile. Both the theoretical discussion and the analysis of the empirical case contribute to the debate on the universality of humanity, on human rights education, and on the increasingly central role of victims in peace-building policies.</span>

  • The Underdeveloped Transformative Potential of Human Rights Education:
           English Primary Education as a Case Study
    • Authors: Struthers AC.
      First page: 68
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>In order for learners to become empowered human rights activists, they must be equipped with relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes. Learner empowerment therefore forms a central element of international human rights education provisions. This article draws upon empirical research to gauge the nature and extent of empowerment in English primary schools, and seeks to better understand the reasons for any deficiencies in its practice. It argues that whilst empowerment-related concepts may be encouraged to a certain extent, learners are unlikely to be emerging from formal schooling with the means to contribute significantly to transformation of the broader human rights culture. Two important barriers are identified: (i) teacher attitudes towards empowerment; and (ii) current government curriculum policy. The article argues on the first of these points that teachers are only likely to become comfortable and confident about such teaching if they are equipped with human rights knowledge, skills and experience in their own training. And on the second, that there needs to be a shift in government policy towards greater learner engagement with empowerment-related skills and relevant community engagement if the current trend towards didactic rote learning is to be reversed.</span>

  • The Marginality of Transitional Justice within Liberal Peacebuilding:
           Causes and Consequences
    • Authors: McAuliffe P.
      First page: 91
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>Transitional justice theory increasingly manifests a division between those who see the field as adding value to contemporary liberal peace missions in post-conflict states and those who argue its roots in this paradigm have resulted in an unduly restrictive vision of justice. Where both mainstream scholars and critics find rare consensus is that transitional justice is a core component, as opposed to a merely marginal aspect, of the liberal peacebuilding enterprise. A belief in the centrality of transitional justice to liberal peacebuilding is held in common by critical transitional justice scholars who argue it replicates its pathologies and more enthusiastic scholars who view it as central to efforts to ground rights-based and democratic cultures. However, this belief in the field’s indispensability to the liberal peace is not borne out by actual peacebuilding practice, where transitional justice is often neglected, marginalized or simply not pursued at all. The apparent embrace of transitional justice in peacebuilding missions approximates what sociological institutionalists label ‘ceremonial conformity’ where an actor adopts policies rhetorically in order to maintain a stream of normative and reputational benefits for its legitimacy, but does not or cannot comply with those commitments. Transitional justice is supportive of liberal peacebuilding outcomes at most, but is not of decisive importance and cannot be said to be a core component in the way that democratization, rule of law or security sector reform are. It is neither as complicit in liberal peacebuilding’s iniquities as critics damn it with, nor as instrumental in the grounding of democratic cultures as its advocates propose. All transitional justice projects are faced with a choice of integration with liberal peacebuilding or disassociation from it—this choice can only be made effectively if actors within the field better understand where their efforts complement or resist the wider liberal peacebuilding process.</span>

  • The Right to Privacy in the Digital Age
    • Authors: Nyst C; Falchetta T.
      First page: 104
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>Recent years have seen the right to privacy, particularly as it pertains to the surveillance and interception of communications, transform from a much-neglected human rights issue to the focus of multiple UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council resolutions. Since March 2015, it has been the subject of a dedicated United Nations special procedures mandate. This policy note seeks to chart the long overdue and rapid progress of the right to privacy to the top of the agendas of regional and international human rights mechanisms. In particular, the note records the role of civil society in supporting the right to privacy’s recent promotion. It identifies the status of norm development around surveillance issues and outlines the major unresolved questions confronting human rights mechanisms for the future.</span>

  • Women’s Health and Human Rights: Converging Avenues for Action in
           East Africa
    • Authors: Pavlish C; Ateva E, Ho A.
      First page: 119
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>Describing a long-term community-based action research project on improving health conditions for displaced persons in Rwanda and South Sudan, this practice note discusses human rights as a framework for improving people’s health. In the course of researching women’s health concerns, researchers learned that human rights violations were a major root cause of poor health among many displaced persons, and especially for women. Partnering with an international non-governmental organization (NGO), the American Refugee Committee, Congolese refugees in Rwanda, and returnees in South Sudan, researchers first explored local perceptions of human rights. Findings were presented to community members and incorporated into a culturally-nuanced health and human rights training programme. We offer lessons learned when working with community members and international partners to develop this community-based educational project on human rights. Primarily, we argue that human rights are intricately related to women’s health. We also suggest that human rights messages are best conceptualized with local concepts and best spoken by trusted community members such as community health workers. Human rights are conceptualized across cultural differences as an ongoing struggle for respect and fair treatment. Women’s experiences of human rights violations most often occur in the context of everyday life and lead to poor outcomes in women’s health. A rights-based framework could assist practitioners and organizations that aim to promote women’s health, development, and well-being.</span>

  • Constitutionalizing Environmental Rights: A Practical Guide
    • Authors: Jeffords C; Gellers JC.
      First page: 136
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>This policy note presents a brief summary of recent quantitative and qualitative research covering: (1) some of the factors associated with country-level adoption of constitutional environmental rights provisions; (2) the subsequent correlations between constitutional environmental rights provisions and environmental and human rights outcomes; and (3) ‘good’ practices in the implementation of constitutional environmental rights. The evidence suggests that, once constitutionalized, environmental rights are positively correlated with environmental and human rights outcomes. Anecdotal accounts also highlight the various ways in which environmental rights have been successfully implemented in different national contexts. This note is thus useful for practitioners because it provides a framework through which one could advocate for or against a particular path to constitutionalizing environmental rights, and offers specific guidance on how environmental rights can be utilized to protect both humans and the natural environment.</span>

  • Budget Analysis as a Tool to Monitor Economic and Social Rights: Where the
           Rubber of International Commitment Meets the Road of Government Policy
    • Authors: Manion M; Ralston R, Matthews T, et al.
      First page: 146
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>This policy and practice note investigates budget analysis as a potential method for human rights practitioners to adopt and implement in their ongoing work. It uses expert interviews, detailed reviews of prior budget analyses, and academic literature to identify the strengths and weaknesses of budget analysis as a method. Budget analysis is a powerful tool for human rights activists. Budgets represent a key piece of evidence for practitioners to hold governments accountable to their obligations to increasingly and effectively generate, allocate, and expend resources for economic and social rights-related programmes. However, there are important issues to consider before conducting a budget analysis, including available expertise and institutional interest in investment, the ability to monitor state allocation over time, and how to work closely with governments. There are also clear limitations to budget analysis as a method, including lack of credible and accessible data, its effectiveness as a monitoring mechanism, and how it can further entrench the assumption that economic and social rights are not on an equal footing with civil and political rights. Despite these issues and limitations, budget analysis should be considered an important, and viable, method for practitioners to consider using in their advocacy efforts.</span>

  • A Playwright for Practitioners: Reflections on Human Rights Storytelling
           and the Art of Naomi Wallace
    • Authors: French N; Phillips B.
      First page: 159
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>As a feature of the Reviews Section of the <span style="font-style:italic;">Journal of Human Rights Practice</span>, we include here the first in a new series on contemporary arts practitioners whose work we believe to be of particular relevance to activists, educators and scholars engaged with human rights practice. Nathaniel French, Literary Associate at New York City’s Signature Theatre, and Brian Phillips, Reviews Editor of the Journal, begin this series with a set of reflections on the work of US playwright Naomi Wallace. Nathaniel French has been the dramaturg for two recent productions of Wallace’s work at Signature Theatre. This two-part essay outlines how some of Wallace’s plays might stimulate fresh thinking about those ‘classic’ personae of the human rights report and campaign: the victim, the witness, and the perpetrator.</span>
