The Ethics of Interdependence : Global Human Rights and Duties Paperback / softback

Part of the New Millennium Books in International Studies series

Description

In this powerful book, William F. Felice argues that a new range of human rights duties for individuals, nation states, and global institutions has emerged in our modern interconnected era.

He investigates the compelling ideas of ethical interdependence and new global human rights duties in four case studies: mass incarceration in the United States, LGBT rights in Africa, women's rights in Saudi Arabia, and environmental rights in China.

Felice argues that in all four cases a "human-rights threshold" has been surpassed, and urgent action is needed to address unacceptable levels of human suffering.

Beginning with a primer on how the international community through the United Nations has codified international human rights law, Felice explores the conflicts between rights, problems of compliance, and the difficulties that emerge when cultural and religious rights are privileged over the rights of individuals and groups.

He shows that a robust normative framework of global governance and global citizenship is central to the actualization of human rights protection for all.
