The Concise Guide to Global Human Rights lays the groundwork for understanding issues relating to global rights across a wide range of topics.

Much more than a simple ‘guide to global human rights,’ this book is an urgently needed and sophisticated reflection on the vital nature of human rights in the 21st century. Daniel Fischlin and Martha Nandorfy argue convincingly that, when the environment, health, water, and food are more at risk than ever before, human rights must become the tangible expression of an ‘all-encompassing respect for life.’

“In a world facing the growing challenges of globalized apartheid and pandemic poverty, human rights will determine the future of every one of us and our sustainability as a species. This book allows us at least to reclaim our hope in that future.” – Roger Clark, former Secretary General of Amnesty International
