  • Tripartite Freedom of Religion in China: An Illiberal Perspective
    • Abstract: Citizens of the People’s Republic of China enjoy freedom of religious belief. The Party strives to fully implement its basic principle for its work related to religious affairs, and rallies religious believers in making contributions to economic and social development. Although China has become the second largest economy in the world, there is no doubt that it is still a communist state, even if it is arguably substantially different from previous communist countries before the Cold War. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) took power in Mainland China in 1949, the government carried out strict policies to restrict, reduce, and even eradicate religion. This was in line with the tradition ... Read More

  • No Justice, No Peace': The Police, People of Color, and the Paradox of
           Protecting Human Rights
    • Abstract: The chant of “no justice, no peace” echoes through Black Lives Matter protests. It seems especially appropriate for this movement, which has organized in response to police killings of unarmed people of color. Unlike when people gather to protest US involvement in distant wars, many people of color are themselves embattled, fearing for their lives and those of their children and grandchildren. Classical liberal theorists such as John Locke saw the legitimacy of the state as based on its ability to uphold the security of its citizens.1 If the state fails to uphold its end of the contract, then citizens are released from theirs. Revolution might even be justified if the state preys on its citizens. At the very ... Read More

  • Document and Analyze: The Legacy of Klemperer, Fraenkel, and Neumann for
           Contemporary Human Rights Engagement
    • Abstract: The human rights movement and language of human rights has been the subject of sustained criticism. Besides its supposed Western liberal bias, critics have focused particularly on human rights as a mode of political engagement. Human rights discourse is seen as legalistic and decontextualized. Richard Wilson argued in 1997 that human rights reports “can depoliticise human rights violations by drawing attention away from structural processes of class or ethnic power, and reduce violations to a set of technical problems concerning the functioning of the legal system.”1 While more recent human rights reports frequently address “root causes,” they still suffer, according to Susan Marks, from false contingency where ...

  • Is There a Human Right to Resistance'
    • Abstract: In the debate on global distributive justice, cosmopolitans have often claimed that the global poor are suffering a severe human rights violation. The foremost amongst them has been Thomas Pogge, who has made the powerful argument that global poverty is the foreseeable and avoidable product of the international system.1 It is understandable that the focus of Pogge and other cosmopolitans has been to offer institutional reforms to ensure secure access to human rights and provide compensation to those who have suffered from human rights violations.2 Yet, very little has changed in the decades in which cosmopolitans have been leveling this criticism and proposing alternatives. There are still hundreds of millions of ... Read More

  • Head-Covering Bans in Belgian Courtrooms and Beyond: Headscarf Persecution
           and the Complicity of Supranational Courts
    • Abstract: Hagar Lachiri is a Belgian national living in the Brussels area. As a Muslim woman, she wears an Islamic headscarf (hijab). When her brother was killed in a crime of passion, Ms. Lachiri intervened as a civil party in the criminal trial together with other relatives. In this context, she sought to attend a hearing of the Brussels Appellate Court in June 2007. When Ms. Lachiri entered the courtroom, the presiding judge asked her to either remove her headscarf or leave the courtroom. She left. Because the Appellate Court did not accept the appeal by Ms. Lachiri and her relatives on its merits, the civil parties lodged a further appeal to the Court of Cassation. They used this opportunity to argue that the ... Read More

  • The Journey of LGBT Rights: Norm Diffusion and its Challenges in EU
           Seeking States: Bosnia and Serbia
    • Abstract: In the process of Europeanization, that is, the adoption of policies, norms, and standards of the European Union, potential candidates are now required to adopt basic rights protecting LGBT1 individuals. Currently, countries in the Western Balkans (or Southeast Europe) that are either candidates (e.g. Serbia) or potential candidates (e.g. Bosnia) have been at the forefront of the intersection of the processes of Europeanization, norm diffusion, domestic nationalism, and new LGBT activism occurring within a dynamic socio-cultural and political post-Yugoslav space. This article seeks to examine and compare the LGBT rights norm diffusion process in Bosnia and Serbia with specific regard to how the EU’s role matters ... Read More

  • The United Nations Treaty Bodies and Universal Periodic Review: Advancing
           Human Rights by Preventing Politicization'
    • Abstract: In March 2005, when compiling his report In Larger Freedom: Towards Development, Security and Human Rights for All, the then United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan had a clear objective in mind: to reform the Human Rights Commission into a new United Nations (UN) human rights body. Annan’s hope was to put an end to the high degree of politicization and double standards that had characterized the Commission in recent years, causing a loss in credibility for the whole UN human rights machinery. This push for reform led to the establishment in 2006 of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC). One of the central missions of the HRC was to “[u]ndertake a universal periodic review . . . of the fulfilment by each State of ... Read More

  • Human Rights and Constitutional Democracy
    • Abstract: In his wonderful new book, The Promise of Human Rights,1 Professor Jamie Mayerfeld advances a bold thesis. He contends that “international human rights law is a necessary extension of domestic checks and balances, and therefore necessary for constitutional government itself.” Moreover, he adds, “constitutional democracy is incomplete unless domestic human rights institutions are bolted into a system of international guarantees.”2 In defending these claims, Mayerfeld is challenging two different beliefs held by many US legal scholars. Call these the “majoritarian view” and the “sovereigntist view.” Majoritarians, like Justice Scalia, tend to see rights-based judicial review as a threat to democratic ... Read More

  • Protest in Putin’s Russia by Mischa Gabowitsch (review)
    • Abstract: Mischa Gabowitsch’s Protest in Putin’s Russia employs extensive interviews, blog posts, print media, and sociological theory to draw a compelling picture of the wave of protests that took place across Russia from 2011 to 2013. Depicting this mobilization through the “logic of the actors” and his own “observations on the ground,” Gabowitsch questions the common perception that the protests were a middle-class rebellion driven by discontented liberals threatened by electoral rigging and the state and corporate corruption. Gabowitsch widens the analytical lens considerably to illustrate how and why thousands of Russians turned out in dozens of cities across the Russian Federation. For the author ... Read More

  • Human Rights or Global Capitalism: The Limits of Privatization by Manfred
           Nowak (review)
    • Abstract: Shortly before I read Manfred Nowak’s important new book on privatization, I came across an article in the business section of Toronto’s Globe and Mail discussing a promising new investment opportunity. The author alerted his readers about the anticipated increase in the number of for-profit prisons in the US as a result of President Trump’s announced policies to get tough on crime and immigration, and he noted that readers could invest in the companies running those prisons. Nowak has collected much evidence that privatization of essential social services undermines all human rights: civil and political as well as economic and social. Nowak’s principal argument is that international human rights ... Read More

  • Antigay Bias in Role-Model Occupations by E. Gary Spitko (review)
    • Abstract: In Antigay Bias in Role Model Occupations, Professor E. Gary Spitko discusses how employers regularly exclude people from role model occupations based on their sexual orientation and why such exclusion matters. The book’s central theme is “that employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation with particular respect to role-model occupations has served as a means to exclude gay people from the public social spaces that identify and teach whom our society respects and whom members of society should seek to emulate.”1 This book comes at an important time and makes a real contribution to the existing literature on anti-discrimination law. In the United States, Title VII is the federal law ... Read More

  • Crimes Unspoken: The Rape of German Women at the End of the Second World
           War by Miriam Gebhardt (review)
    • Abstract: Beginning in the 1990s, global women’s human rights mobilizations have helped redefine wartime rape as a crime against humanity and of genocide and turned women’s vulnerability to sexual violence in war and peacetime into a matter of grave, if not contested, international concern. These movements in transnational and national venues provide support for a public airing of long repressed and silenced memories and also a context for accountability and even financial compensation. Demonstrating the intricate connections between past and present, this new milieu has emboldened scholars to challenge and reshape long-held historical narratives. The human rights culture of protection might be challenged in today’s ... Read More

  • Understanding What Human Rights Brings to Development and Health Policy
           Debates: Global Health as a Reflection of Global (In)Justice
    • Abstract: The field of global health has expanded exponentially in the last ten years. College and post-graduate programs on public health and global health have increased from 109 to 186 between 2007 and 2016.1 In that context, Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why' (hereinafter Governing Global Health) is a well-written, accessible book that describes how a set of critically important institutions engage in global health functions, and it should be read by this burgeoning group of practitioners and students of global health alike. Indeed, the central issue that Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar, the authors of Governing Global Health, set out to address is one that should concern everyone ... Read More

  • To my Karmic Guru-Dev with Gratitude: Wiktor Osiatyński, February
           1945–April 2017
    • Abstract: In ancient India, there lived a renowned acharya (teacher) named Dronacharya, who taught archery only to the royals. In the forest, overlooking the opulent marble palace, lived Ekalavya—a shudra (a lower-caste Hindu). Ekalavya longed to learn archery. But as an “untouchable,” he was shunned and forced into a life of illiteracy. Undeterred, he sculpted Drona’s clay bust and mounted it in front of his thatched hut. He worshipped it daily, before practicing archery. (Note: Hindus practice idol worship, and equate teachers to God—Guru-Dev.) Years sped by. One day, the royals, King Dhritarashtra and Drona, happened to witness Ekalavya’s martial prowess and were astounded. “Who taught you archery'” asked ... Read More
