Synopsis

This volume sets out to describe the political and philosophical underpinnings of the idea of human rights by bringing together a collection of original essays by a group of highly distinguished theorists. Recognizing that Western insistence on the universality of the concept of human rights can also function as diplomatic cover for post-colonial interventions, it insists that the campaign for human rights must take into account the varied social and economic environments in different nation states that affect the ways such demands can be implemented. This campaign is most effective when demonstrating international solidarity with those whose basic rights are jeopardized or denied.

The Belgrade Circle was established as an intellectual forum to promote the establishment of a free, open, democratic and rational civil society around the world. Founded in February 1992 by a group of independent and dissidents intellectuals, it gained an international reputation through its courageous struggle against the nationalism, xenophobia and politics of war which spread dramatically through Serbian society during the collapse of the Federal republic of Yugoslavia between 1992 and 1999.
