Contesting World Order? : Socioeconomic Rights and Global Justice Movements, Paperback / softback Book

Contesting World Order? : Socioeconomic Rights and Global Justice Movements Paperback / softback

Part of the Globalization and Human Rights series

Description

What do equality, dignity and rights mean in a world where eight men own as much wealth as half the world's population?

Contesting World Order? Socioeconomic Rights and Global Justice Movements examines how global justice movements have engaged the language of socioeconomic rights to contest global institutional structures and rules responsible for contributing to the persistence of severe poverty.

Drawing upon perspectives from critical international relations studies and the activities of global justice movements, this book evaluates the 'counter-hegemonic' potential of socioeconomic rights discourse and its capacity to contribute towards an alternative to the prevailing neo-liberal 'common sense' of global governance.
