Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Among the signal developments of the last third of the twentieth century has been the emergence of a new politics of human rights. The transnational circulation of norms, networks, and representations has advanced human rights claims in ways that have reshaped global practices. Just as much as the transnational flow of capital, the new human rights politics are part of the phenomenon that has come to be termed globalization. Shifting the focus from the sovereignty of the nation to the rights of individuals, regardless of nationality, the interplay between the local and the global in these new human rights claims is fundamentally redrawing the boundaries between the rights of individuals, states, and the international community.

Truth Claims brings together some of the best new work from a variety of disciplinary and geographic perspectives in order to examine the making of human rights claims and the cultural politics of their representations. All of the essays explore the potentialities of an expansive humanistic framework. Here, the authors move beyond the terms ¾ and the limitations¾ of the universalism/relativism debate that has so defined existing human rights literature.
