Human Rights in Asia : A Comparative Legal Study of Twelve Asian Jurisdictions, France and the USA, Paperback / softback Book

Human Rights in Asia : A Comparative Legal Study of Twelve Asian Jurisdictions, France and the USA Paperback / softback

Edited by Randall Peerenboom, Albert H. Y. Chen, Carole J. Petersen

Part of the Routledge Law in Asia series

Description

Human Rights in Asia considers how human rights are viewed and implemented in Asia.

It covers not just civil and political rights, but also social, economic and cultural rights.

This study discusses the problems arising from the fact that ideas of human rights have evolved in Western liberal democracies and examines how far such values are compatible with Asian values and applicable in Asian contexts.

Core chapters on France and the USA provide a benchmark on how human rights have emerged and how they are applied and implemented in a civil law and a common law jurisdiction.

These are then followed by twelve chapters on the major countries of East Asia plus India, each of which follows a common template to consider the context of the legal system in each country, black letter law, legal discussions and debates and key current issues concerning human rights in each jurisdiction.
