The Atlas of Human Rights : Mapping Violations of Freedom Worldwide, Paperback

The Atlas of Human Rights : Mapping Violations of Freedom Worldwide Paperback

Part of the The Earthscan Atlas series



Human rights have become synonymous with legal, political, social and even economic justice - as a means of overcoming oppression and discrimination irrespective of nationality, class, creed, gender, ethnicity, or even ideological commitment.

As global governments are increasingly using a threat of terrorism to tighten national security, this critical investigation reveals inequities within the various interpretations of human rights and their applications worldwide.

It covers a wide range of topics - from unfair detention and torture to racism, rape and child soldiers - and is divided into seven key parts: * State, identity and citizenship * Judicial violations and legal restrictions * Freedom of expression and censorship * Conflict and migration * Discrimination * Women's rights * Rights of the child.
