Human Rights Futures

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 18:30 to 20:00

Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre

Human Rights Futures sees the world at a crucial juncture.  The project for globalizing rights will either continue to be embedded or will fall backward into a maelstrom of nationalist backlash, religious resurgence and faltering Western power.  In one collected volume, mainstream and critical human rights scholars together examine the empirical and normative debates around the future of human rights.  They ask what makes human rights effective, what strategies will enhance the chances of compliance, what blocks progress, and whether the hope for human rights is entirely misplaced in a rapidly transforming world.
