Abstract

Human Rights and the Global Marketplace is the first U.S. textbook to focus primarily on economic, social, and cultural human rights and the implications of globalization for all human rights. The text is appropriate for law school, political science, and other classroom contexts as well as reference use. The book adopts both international and comparative approaches. It examines issues arising under the UN human rights system, regional systems, and the domestic implementation of human rights standards in jurisdictions as diverse as India, Venezuela, Jamaica, Europe, South Africa, and the United States.

The many topics addressed include the philosophical, cultural, political, and religious foundations of rights norms; neo-liberal and, critical approaches to human rights; poverty and the justiciability of social and economic rights; the human rights implications of trade and development policy; the rights of indigenous peoples; racial, gender, and disability discrimination; the rights of children; and culturally-specific and universal approaches to rights.

Keywords: Human Rights and the Global Economy, economic and social rights, cultural rights, indigenous peoples, immigration, international law, racial discrimination, women, migration
