Human Rights In Global World
International efforts to construct a set of standardised human rights guidelines are based upon the identification of agreed key values regarding the relationships between individuals and the institutions governing them, which are viewed as critical to the well-being of humanity and the character of being human. This publication considers these issues of justice at the national, regional, and international levels by analysing civil, political, economic and social rights aspects. There is a single reference work that documents the history of human rights worldwide and it clearly explains each document of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and examines the major human rights issues facing the world today. This book on Human Rights covers a broad range of human rights issues that are central to an understanding of world history and current affairs.
