Books Info:

Realizing Human Rights free pdf At the dawn of a new era, this book brings together leading activists, policy makers and critics to reflect upon fifty years of governmental and non-governmental attempts to improve respect for human rights around the world. Authors include President Jimmy Carter, who helped inject human rights concerns into U.S. policy, Wei Jingsheng, who struggled valiantly to do so in China, and Louis Henkin, the modern 'father' of international law and Richard Goldstone, the former chief prosecutor for the Yugoslav and Rwandan war crimes tribunals. At the commencement of a new millennium - a half-century since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - many core human rights ideals have become firmly established in international law, politics and policy. Human rights organizations have achieved a prominence unheard of even a decade ago. The time is right to assess how the policies and actions of governments, international organizations and independent actors effect the realization of human rights around the world and to point to the new directions and challenges that lie ahead in the twenty-first century. This is a must-have for everyone in the human rights community and the broader foreign policy community, as well as the serious non-fiction reader who is increasingly aware of the visibility of human rights concerns on the public stage.
