Abstract

This essay is a critique of discourses in international human rights which have failed to meaningfully ask why some individuals are driven to “fundamentalist” discourses and acts of violence. The essay problematizes the term “fundamentalist” and calls for a new lens through which to view the concept of human in international human rights discourse.

Keywords: Islam, fundamentalism, international human rights
