Abstract

La experiencia de los derechos humanos se manifiesta a través de luces y sombras, pues los derechos adquieren su forma en un complejo juego de reflejos en el cual las exigencias de emancipación se enlazan con las lógicas de dominio. Desde un punto de vista fenomenológico, los derechos parecen estar atravesados por una dicotomía a través de la cual la universalidad no modifica (quizás consolida) el hecho de su inefectividad, la generalidad no resuelve (quizás esconde) dinámicas discriminadoras, la multiplicación más que paz social produce contraposición. Los regímenes jurídicos de los derechos se interesan también por la transformación del mismo proceso de producción; esto deriva de una complicación de la relación entre política y justicia: al mismo tiempo que la política se judicializa, la justicia se politiza. Los profundos cambios presentes en el mundo contemporáneo, que configuran un nuevo espacio geopolítico y un inédito pluralismo de los valores en un contexto de diversidad cultural, actúan como factores que modifican el sentido del discurso de los derechos humanos. Los análisis contenidos en este volumen se desarrollan sobre distintas áreas jurídicas y filosóficas. Partiendo del examen directo de algunas cuestiones clave, ponen de relieve esos problemas complejos y señalan la urgente necesidad de una reflexión sobre las posibles vías para corresponder a las reivindicaciones de libertad y de justicia expresadas en la demanda de los derechos.

Abstract

Combines an overview of the key theoretical models of democracy and human rights with a state-of-the-art survey which reports on trade-offs between achievements, set-backs and challenges in some of the world's 'hotspots'. The 20th century has been described as the bloodiest in human history, but it was also the century in which people around the world embraced ideas of democracy and human rights as never before, constructing social, political and legal institutions seeking to contain human behaviour. Todd Landman offers an optimistic, yet cautionary tale of these developments, drawing on the literature, from politics, international relations and international law. He celebrates the global turn from tyranny and violence towards democracy and rights but also warns of the precariousness of these achievements in the face of democratic setbacks and the undermining of rights commitments by many countries during the so-called ‘War on Terror'. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

Switzerland was not content to stay on the sidelines of the CSCE (Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe) negotiations. Particularly in the area of human rights policies and by applying its talent for successful mediation between East and West, Switzerland achieved great recognition, as Philip Rosin`s thoroughly researched and methodologically persuasive study clearly reveals.

Abstract

Austria was active in the CSCE (Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe) negotiations, primarily in the contentious areas of humanitarian issues and human rights. Despite consistent claims of neutrality, Vienna supported the Western position on all important questions. Benjamin Gilde's broadly researched study offers major insight into the history of the humanitarian aspect of the CSCE.

Abstract

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2018 was the year of the ‘earthly dog’. In the middle of the long, hot, and feverish dog days of the summer of 2018, some workers at Shenzhen Jasic Technology took their chances and attempted to form an independent union. While this action was met by the harshest repression, it also led to extraordinary demonstrations of solidarity from small groups of radical students from all over the country, which in turn were immediately and severely suppressed. China’s year of the dog was also imbued with the spirit of another canine, Cerberus—the three-headed hound of Hades—with the ravenous advance of the surveillance state and the increasing securitisation of Chinese society, starting from the northwestern region of Xinjiang. This Yearbook traces these latest developments in Chinese society through a collection of 50 original essays on labour, civil society, and human rights in China and beyond, penned by leading scholars and practitioners from around the world.

Abstract

The biography and work of Fred Vondracek are inseparable. The contributions of the authors who have had the privilege of being close to the research and the life of Fred Vondracek provide a clear picture of him as an exemplary paradigm of the concept of person in context. His agency in contexts of dramatic structural changes and transitions in society are representative of both his personal experience and his scientific position. Fred ‘s ability to bring new insights into the field of developmental psychology has opened our minds to the need for new research paradigms, which his colleagues and followers testify to in this book. Combining classical approaches to human development with ecological and living systems emergent models, Fred Vondracek’s work reveals a modern and harmonious view of life. Individuals and social structures are no longer separate pieces in an unresolved puzzle, but instead produce developmental synergies. In the elegance and rigor of his writings we perceive his impetus to advance the theoretical and conceptual development, as well as the methodologies to guide research and practical intervention, always illuminated by his magnificent soul - a true representative of the “alma mater conimbrigensis”.

Abstract

The Global Citizenship Commission was convened, under the leadership of former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the auspices of NYU’s Global Institute for Advanced Study, to re-examine the spirit and stirring words of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The result – this volume – offers a 21st-century commentary on the original document, furthering the work of human rights and illuminati ng the ideal of global citizenship. What does it mean for each of us to be members of a global community? Since 1948, the Declaration has stood as a beacon and a standard for a better world. Yet the work of making its ideals real is far from over. Hideous and systemic human rights abuses continue to be perpetrated at an alarming rate around the world. Too many people, particularly those in power, are hostile to human rights or indifferent to their claims. Meanwhile, our global interdependence deepens. Bringing together world leaders and thinkers in the fields of philosophy, law, ethics, politics, and philanthropy, the Commission set out to develop a common understanding of the meaning of global citizenship – one that arises from basic human rights and empowers every individual in the world. This landmark report affirms the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and seeks to renew the 1948 enterprise, and the very ideal of the human family, for our day and generation.

Abstract

The Arctic-Barents Region is facing numerous pressures from a variety of sources, including the effect of environmental changes and extractive industrial developments. The threats arising out of these pressures result in human security challenges. This book analyses the formation, and promotion, of societal security within the context of the Arctic-Barents Region. It applies the human security framework, which has increasingly gained currency at the UN level since 1994 (UNDP), as a tool to provide answers to many questions that face the Barents population today. The study explores human security dimensions such as environmental security, economic security, health, food, water, energy, communities, political security and digital security in order to assess the current challenges that the Barents population experiences today or may encounter in the future. In doing so, the book develops a comprehensive analysis of vulnerabilities, challenges and needs in the Barents Region and provides recommendations for new strategies to tackle insecurity and improve the wellbeing of both indigenous and local communities. This book will be a valuable tool for academics, policy-makers and students interested in environmental and human security, sustainable development, environmental studies and the Arctic and Barents Region in particular.
