Written some fifty years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this book shows that the struggle for a fuller realisation of these rights is far from over. It maps out the current international human rights agenda by focusing on four interrelated themes. The first concerns the conceptual development of human rights; the second looks at human rights in the Asia-Pacific region; the third considers human rights in a post-Cold War environment; and the fourth assesses the protection and monitoring of human rights.
ROBERT G. PATMAN is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at the University of Otago, New Zealand. He is the author ofThe Soviet Union in the Horn of Africa: the Diplomacy of Intervention and Disengagementand editor ofNew Zealand and Britain: A Special Relationship in TransitionandSecurity in the Post-Cold War World.
