The international community has embarked on an unprecedented effort to map out normative guidelines for global justice. The core premise of this effort is to reach a more ethical understanding and arrangement of relations between individuals and the institutions governing them. Any search for justice requires the identification of values that are considered so critical to the well-being of people that they are eventually institutionalized as rights. These rights become the basis upon which claims are made and the horizon of justice to which society and institutions try to conform. The Globalization of Human Rights examines the imperatives of justice at the national, regional and international levels. It does this by analyzing civil and political, and economic and social rights. The end of the Cold War and the normative and political changes that have ensued at the international level in recent years have reinvigorated the critical importance of the international effort to determine human rights. This volume makes an important contribution to that discussion.
