Foreign Policy and Human Rights
Issues and ResponsesBook - 1986
This is a book about the issue of human rights in international relations, and the response to it both in the foreign policies of states, and in the attitudes of international and non-governmental organisations. Its main purpose is to connect up the issues on the one hand and responses on the other, rather than, as is often the case, considering each in isolation. A concluding chapter draws together the assembled material in a general overview of the place of human rights in the practice of international politics. The book ranges across the whole international spectrum, and its importance lies partly in its collection of case material, partly in its linkage of issues to responses, and partly in its overall conclusions about the role and impact of human rights in international relations.
