Human Rights: Theory and Practice

Goodhart, Michael

9780190085469 - Human Rights: Theory and Practice
2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

Human Rights: Theory and Practice is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary text written by a global team of experts with coverage and content unrivaled by any other text on the market. With contributions from an international panel of experts, including political scientists, lawyers, philosophers, and policy-makers, this text is unmatched in its ability to provide students with a practical, comprehensive and 21st century perspectives on the theory, study and practice of human rights. In addition to in-depth theoretical content, the book features unrivaled coverage of human rights issues in practice, with a wide range of case studies allowing students to explore true-to-life examples from around the world. There are also dynamic pedagogical features that encourage critical analysis, challenge students to question their assumptions, and facilitate class dialogue on key issues. This text comes to us as a highly-respected and successful OUP UK title. With high export sales to the US in previous editions, it is poised to continue its sales growth as an OUP USA title. The fourth edition will be brought fully up-to-date, with new readings centered on recent and relevant issues. The proposed revisions and title change (from "Politics and Practice") will reposition the text as an interdisciplinary examination of human rights, rather than strictly political science-centric. This change will make known to a broader market what current users have noted: this text is applicable to a range of courses and disciplines, such as Philosophy and graduate level courses. Section I will be reorganized to remove the critical chapter, following reviewer feedback, and to focus more on theory as it relates to different areas of study (Philosophy, Law, Social Practice, Politics, etc.). Section II will follow its existing format, focused on practice, with new and updated readings related to the Black Lives Matter movement, women's rights, the refugee crises, and genocide, among others.
