Editorial Reviews


"A tremendously important book. At its core, it is much more than an assessment of the efficacy and difficulties associated with employing a rights-based approach or framework to a wide range of grievances. Rather, it is a book about the possible, a book about the individuals and organizations who have refused to be satisfied with the status quo, and who have had the courage to try to convince others to see rights violations in places where they never saw them before. From this, we should take inspiration."—H-Net

"The International Struggle for New Human Rights moves beyond the assumption that only the most in need, oppressed, and marginalized groups have the ability to internationalize their grievances through civil society organizing. Specifically, the volume highlights groups that have recently and successfully utilized human rights framing and rhetoric to gain international support for their cause and traces the why and how of this process."—Human Rights Quarterly
