Synopsis

The relationship between human rights and justice is significant, deep, and ultimately contested. The two terms themselves - human rights and justice - have experienced both conceptual and operational pushback from many quarters in recent years.











Although an understanding of justice is inherent in broad human rights discourses, there is no clear consensus on how to integrate and reconcile these concepts - both as a means of advancing knowledge and as a mechanism for the development of sound and effective policy at the global, regional, and national levels. Further, expansions of the boundaries of both human rights and justice make any clear and settled understanding of the relation difficult to ascertain. This volume tackles these issues in a coherent and complementary manner. It examines a range of philosophical, economic, and social perspectives that are key to understanding the nature of the linkages between human rights and justice, written by scholars who are at varying stages of their careers, and whose ongoing work has sparked dialogue and exchange within and across these fields.





This work will be of interest to students and scholars of human rights, international relations and ethics.
