This book examines current human rights issues and shows how a broader understanding can be used to ground a form of practice that is central to social work, community development and broader human services. The argument extends the idea of human rights beyond the realm of theoretical analysis, and into the arena of professional practice and social action, using a critical theory perspective. Drawing on current debates about globalization, this book adds a vital new perspective to the promotion of international human rights.
