Closing the Rights Gap : From Human Rights to Social Transformation, Hardback Book

Closing the Rights Gap : From Human Rights to Social Transformation Hardback

Edited by LaDawn Haglund, Robin Stryker


Do "human rights" as embodied in constitutions, national laws, and international agreements foster improvements in the lives of the poor or otherwise marginalized populations?

When, where, how, and under what conditions? Closing the Rights Gap: From Human Rights to Social Transformation systematically compares a range of case studies from around the world in order to clarify the conditions under which and institutions through which economic, social, and cultural rights are progressively realized in practice.

It concludes with testable hypotheses regarding how significant transformative change might occur, as well as an agenda for future research to facilitate rights realization worldwide.
