Globalisation of Human Rights

Rahul Rai (Author)
Synopsis The recognition of human rights and the weaving of a web of globalisation are probably the most important political developments of our ties. For the past two decades, globalisation and everywhere in step, but in a way that unmistakably shows they are interconnected. As globalisation has accelerated since the late 1980s, so too fast has the global trend towards democracy and universalisation of human rights. Globalisation enhances human rights directly by expanding the freedom of people to exercise greater control over their daily lives. The human contacts, rising incomes, and diffusion of power that come with globalisation, not only we can help to raise growth rates and incomes,, promote higher standards, and feed, clothe and house the poor; but also to spread political and civil freedoms. This book attempts to provide an account of the process of universalisation of human rights in a globalised world. The focus is on how human rights may become more or less secure as a result of globalisation. This book adds important insights into human rights and globalisation, a subject that is sure to remain at the centre of debate for a considerable time. It should intrigue graduate4 students, professionals and others who have a keen interest in human rights and globalsiation.

About the author

Rahul Rai

Rahul Rai is an alumni of St. Stephens’ College, New Delhi. His Selection as the Founder Director of Indian Institute of Human Rights (IIHR), New Delhi has been based on his knowledge of human rights education at postgraduate level as well as the initiatives taken by him in the process of the establishment of IIHR in December 1999 and its inauguration by Justice J.S. Verma, Chairman, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the occasion of Human Rights Say. Rahul rai’s contribution in contacting more than 50 universities and advising them to get themselves associated with the Indian Institute of Human Rights (IIHR) for co-sponsoring the post Graduate Programme in Human Rights will go a long way in the training in the new millennium. As the study and concern about human rights has remained largely confined to international lawyers, diplomats and statesmen, Rahul Rai has been active to see that these rights increasingly become the subjects of concern for national lawyers, activists, reformers, policy makers and other citizenry. Rahul Rai has organised and participated in many national as well as international conferences related to human rights, civil liberties, disaster mitigation, sustainable development and depolluting technologies. Besides collaborating with selected Indian universities, the author is presently working on the WIBP’s joint venture ‘international education project’ for inviting reputed British universities for offering need-based programmmes in India.
