Overview

This collection presents a comprehensive engagement of issues of human rights in an increasingly globalized world. As the role of the rule of law has moved beyond the confines of the state and beyond the interactions of states, how and when law protects human rights has become a central issue of concern. These essays shed light on both the immediate and the long-term future of a variety of issues located at the intersection of globalized law and the protection of the rights of individuals. Here both top-down mechanisms and bottom-up mechanisms for the fulfilment of human rights are artfully explained. This volume presents frontiers of research in human rights in both substance and approach using a variety of methodologies to engage issues ranging from national court compliance, norm diffusion, and the role of the judiciary in fulfilling human rights to human trafficking, same-sex marriage, and judicial institution building through non-governmental organizations.

This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Human Rights.
