About the product

The Globalization of Human Rights addresses a set of questions focusing on the justice at the national, regional, and international levels. The examination of these questions is conducted through analysis of rights, both civil and political, and economic and social. Any search for justice is based upon identifying values, including relationships with others that are eventually institutionalized as rights. Such rights become the basis upon which claims are made, as well as the horizon of justice to which society and institutions try to conform. This volume maps out the requirements of justice for all mankind, providing normative guidelines as well as goals.
