{mosimage}This book provides a brief history of the development of international human rights law during this century. It situates human rights in its context by tracing social, political, and economic factors that have had a profound influence on human rights law and practice. While contextualizing human rights, it examines women’s rights struggle and discusses the question of nation-state and human rights as well as the challenges to universality of human rights including the “Asian Values” debate.

This Resource Book contains detailed information and analysis of the provisions of the four major human rights treaties: ICESC, ICCPR, CEDAW, and CRC.
