The Stanford Studies in Human Rights series reaches beyond conventional approaches and disciplinary boundaries to publish widely ranging studies in human rights from diverse perspectives. Connecting the scholarly community to human rights practitioners, books in this list include ethnographic studies of human rights in practice, critical reflections on the concept of human rights, new proposals for a more effective international human rights system, and historical accounts of the rise of human rights as a globalized moral discourse.
Books in this series bring together established and emerging voices that creatively examine the key dilemmas in contemporary human rights theory and practice. Committed to the idea that human rights should be a fundamentally interdisciplinary area of human knowledge, political practice, and ethical inquiry, this series features works that provide lasting contributions to the field and that make an important and lasting contribution to the study and understanding of human rights in this new century.
