The politics of human rights protection : moving intervention upstream with impact assessment by Jan Knippers Black( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important work argues that human rights abuse is not necessarily about distant places and peoples, and it is neither incomprehensible nor inevitable. Despite the appearance of consensus about the importance of human rights protection, abuse - with its common core in inequality - is expanding at all levels from the petty to the profound. Designed to inform and inspire, this book also provides the analytical and strategic tools needed for the next generation of activists. Jan Knippers Black offers a fundamental reexamination of the basic terms and concepts, legal and institutional foundations, controversies, cleavages, threats and strategies associated with human rights." "Black's perspective is holistic, stressing the relevance of human rights issues to all human needs and endeavors and requiring multidisciplinary analysis. Chapters analyzing connections among political, economic, ecological, and cultural impacts on social and individual well-being are accompanied by case studies highlighting lessons learned from success or failure. This empowering book seeks to promote an "each for all" commitment, breaking through barriers of ignorance and apathy, denial and despair, so that advocates and activists can work to prevent future atrocities."--BOOK JACKET

Inequity in the global village : recycled rhetoric and disposable people by Jan Knippers Black( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As globalization rapidly replaces the cold war paradigm, disturbing aspects of this transition are often glossed over. Jan Black illuminates the problems that have arisen such as growing refugee populations, increased nationalism, and describes how the narrow distribution of benefits from globalization has created a yawning gap in wealth and power both among and within states. She works on the premise that this disturbing and growing gap is partly the product of a globalized capitalist system run amuck and which she describes as "mobile money and immobilized political leadership.""--Jacket

"As the literature on development has proliferated, communication among those who approach development from different perspectives, disciplines, and professions has become more strained. In this innovative text, Jan Black argues that what is missing is appropriate theory. The second edition includes more paradoxes and case studies and increased coverage of refugees and indigenous peoples. More information on the new states in post-Soviet East and Central Europe is also incorporated."--Jacket
