The recognition of human rights and the weaving of a web of globalisation are probably the most important political developments of our ties. For the past two decades, globalisation and everywhere in step, but in a way that unmistakably shows they are interconnected. As globalisation has accelerated since the late 1980s, so too fast has the global trend towards democracy and universalisation of human rights. Globalisation enhances human rights directly by expanding the freedom of people to exercise greater control over their daily lives. The human contacts, rising incomes, and diffusion of power that come with globalisation, not only we can help to raise growth rates and incomes,, promote higher standards, and feed, clothe and house the poor; but also to spread political and civil freedoms. This book attempts to provide an account of the process of universalisation of human rights in a globalised world. The focus is on how human rights may become more or less secure as a result of globalisation. This book adds important insights into human rights and globalisation, a subject that is sure to remain at the centre of debate for a considerable time. It should intrigue graduate4 students, professionals and others who have a keen interest in human rights and globalisation.
