The Atlas of Human Rights

About this book

Human rights have become synonymous with legal, political, social and even economic justice - as a means of overcoming oppression and discrimination irrespective of nationality, class, creed, gender, ethnicity, or even ideological commitment.
As global governments are increasingly using a threat of terrorism to tighten national security, this critical investigation reveals inequities within the various interpretations of human rights and their applications worldwide. It covers a wide range of topics - from unfair detention and torture to racism, rape and child soldiers - and is divided into seven key parts:
" State, identity and citizenship
" Judicial violations and legal restrictions
" Freedom of expression and censorship
" Conflict and migration
" Discrimination
" Women's rights
" Rights of the child
