'A superb collection of essays epitomizing the new wave of human rights scholarship that is more evaluative, inter-disciplinary, quantitative, critical and engaged. Essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how, when and why the international human rights system works (and doesn't work).' Philip G. Alston, John Norton Pomeroy Professor of Law, New York University
'The Persistent Power of Human Rights shows the persistent imagination of a group of scholars who developed the spiral model more than a decade ago. The revisited version is as significant for our understanding of social norms as the 1999 book was - a must for students of human rights.' Michael Zürn, Director at the WZB and Professor of International Relations, Freie Universität Berlin
The Power of Human Rights (published in 1999) was an innovative and influential contribution to the study of international human rights. At its center was a 'spiral model' of human rights change which described the various socialization processes through which international norms were internalized into the domestic practices of various authoritarian states during the Cold War years. The Persistent Power of Human Rights builds on these insights, extending its reach and analysis. It updates our understanding of the various causal mechanisms and conditions which produce behavioural compliance, and expands the range of rights-violating actors examined to include democratic and authoritarian Great Powers, corporations, guerrilla groups, and private actors. Using a unique blend of quantitative and qualitative research and theory, this book yields not only important new academic insights but also a host of useful lessons for policy-makers and practitioners.
