U of Chicago, Public Law Working Paper No. 369

Abstract:     
These comments address some theoretical, empirical, and normative claims made by Beth Simmons in her book, Mobilizing for Human Rights. The empirical heart of the book is rigorous, but because of the shallowness of the data and the limits of the empirical methodology, the implications for human rights law are narrow and to a large extent ambiguous.
