Governance of Human Rights: Challenges in the Age of Globalisation

R C Mishra (Author)
Synopsis Globalisation is a dominant force which is shaping a new era of interaction among nations, economics and people. It is increasing the contacts between people across national boundaries – in economy, technology, culture and governance. But it is also fragmenting production processes, labour markets, political entities and societies. The globalised world is more prosperous, with average per capita incomes having more than tripled in the past 50 years. Child death rates have fallen by half and a child born today can expect to live a decade longer than a child born then. The educational and literacy status have also risen. Despite these tremendous progresses, today the world faces huge backlog of deprivation and inequality that leave huge disparities within countries and regions. Poverty is everywhere. Disparities are starkest in the political and economic arena, with women nearly closed out of political life. The need for changes in international governance is now widely accepted, and the international community has begun to seek solutions with renewed vigour. Fundamental rethinking of policy and governance is again required. It must be broad and fair, and it must restore an integrated approach covering social as well as economic issues. This book provides a detailed account of the status of human right and their governance in the age of globalisation. It highlights the importance of the need for changes in international governance to enhance human dignity in the changing world. The content of the book will be highly informative to human rights activists, policy makers, students and all the concerned.
