Overview

Extensive and protracted violations of human rights commonly derive from the underlying conflicts and divisions within a society, as well as from the policies and practices of those responsible for governing the state. Human Rights: Realities and Possibilities examines the impact of these two forces on civil and political rights in two closely associated Western liberal states, Northern and Southern Ireland, and two contrasting European communist states, Yugoslavia and Hungary. On the basis of this detailed analysis specific proposals are put forward for remedying infringements and deficiencies in key human rights areas for each of the countries concerned.
