Non-Governmental Human Rights Organizations in International Relations, Hardback (April 2009)
Human rights play a crucial role in today's international relations. They provide standards to which states must conform when dealing with their own citizens. Non-governmental human rights organizations remind states of their obligations in that field. Without this, human rights would have drifted to the bottom of the international agenda.
Role of Human Rights in Foreign Policy, Hardback (December 2003)
This title analyses conflicting policy goals such as peace and security, economic relations and development co-operation. The use of diplomatic, economic and military means is discussed, together with the role of state actors, intergovernmental organizations and non state actors.
