  • Description 
  • Contents 
  • Details

    A just international order and a healthy cosmopolitan discipline of law need to include perspectives that take account of the standpoints, interests, concerns and beliefs of non-Western people and traditions. The dominant scholarly and activist discourses about human rights have developed largely without reference to these other viewpoints.

    Claims about universality sit uneasily with ignorance of other traditions and parochial or ethnocentric tendencies. The object of the book is to make accessible the ideas of four jurists who present distinct ‘Southern’ perspectives on human rights.

    • Presents the key works of four Southern jurists in their own words
    • Sets the works and authors in their historical and political contexts
    • Raises issues of contemporary importance in world politics

    2. Francis Deng
    3. Abdullahi An-Na'im
    4. Yash Ghai
