The Cambridge Handbook of Human Dignity

A Commentary on the Paris Principles on National Human Rights Institutions

Edited by William A. Schabas Middlesex University and Universiteit Leiden

Edited by Marcus Düwell, Universiteit Utrecht, The Netherlands Jens Braarvig, Universitetet i Oslo Roger Brownsword, King’s College London Dietmar Mieth, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen, Germany

Gauthier de Beco, University of Leeds Rachel Murray, University of Bristol

The Travaux Préparatoires

This collection of documents associated with the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights lays bare the thinking behind the Declaration’s text. Given the seminal role of the Declaration in modern human rights law, an awareness of its drafting is crucial to understanding the scope of fundamental rights.

Interdisciplinary Perspectives

This introduction to human dignity explores the history of the notion of dignity, addresses a range of systematic conceptualisations and introduces current debates. Featuring a wide range of perspectives, it is a valuable resource for students, scholars and professionals working in philosophy, law, history and theology.

This study of the Paris Principles analyses their history, evolution and future, and provides a comprehensive commentary on every provision. It is the first book to thoroughly analyse the Principles and will appeal to a broad global audience of both practitioners and international human rights scholars.

The Economic Accomplices to the Argentine Dictatorship

United States Migrant Interdiction and the Detention of Refugees in Guantánamo Bay

Edited by Horacio Verbitsky, Center for Legal and Social Studies, Buenos Aires Juan Pablo Bohoslavsky, United Nations Human Rights Council, Geneva

Azadeh Dastyari, Monash University, Victoria

Outstanding Debts

In the wake of human rights violations, how wide is the circle of responsibility? In this book, renowned human rights scholars uncover how banks, individuals, and companies supported the oppressive Argentinian dictatorship. Studies of Ford Motors, the press, and the Catholic Church demonstrate that economic actors should be held accountable.

As the only book to comprehensively address the U.S. immigration detention facility in Guantánamo Bay, this book will be of interest to both a general and academic audience. It investigates the Migrant Interdiction Program, the oldest and most influential extraterritorial detention program in the world.

Security Theology, Surveillance and the Politics of Fear

Caring Autonomy

Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Katri Lõhmus, University of Edinburgh

Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian offers new insights into the everyday production of security, surveillance and its industry of fear in settler colonial contexts by building on the voices of those living in one of the world’s longest-standing conflict zones: Israel/Palestine.

European Human Rights Law and the Challenge of Individualism Caring Autonomy considers the practice of the European Court of Human Rights and argues for a reconceptualisation of autonomy. The present individualistic understanding of autonomy is inadequate as it fails to acknowledge human interdependence and the importance of interpersonal trust and care for the development and practice of autonomy.

H U M A N R IGH TS I N HISTORY “Replete with lively prose and compelling protagonists, but also steeled by compendious historical research, this book tells the story of Cold War humanitarianism as refracted through a divided Germany. Hong unwraps the reality of global humanitarianism as ulterior politics rather than universal principle. But she also shows how humanitarian actions may be principled, in unexpected ways, because of politics.”

Cold War Germany, the Third World, and the Global Humanitarian Regime

YOU N G - S U N HON G is Associate Professor of History at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and the author of Welfare, Modernity and the Weimar State, 1919–1933 (1998). She has been a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the Harvard Center for European Studies, and New York University’s International Center for Advanced Studies. She has also received fellowships from the German Marshall Fund, the Max Planck Institute, the German Academic Exchange Service, and the Social Science Research Council. Hong has contributed to debates on modernity and transnationalism as part of the H-German Forum on Transnationalism (2006) and the German History Forum on Asia, Germany, and the Transnational Turn (2010). In 2008, she organized a session on Asian-German studies at the German Studies Association meeting. Currently, she serves on the editorial board of Social History.

Mark A. Drumbl, Transnational Law Institute, Washington and Lee University “Set very astutely in the larger context of the Cold War between the two superpower blocs, this is the first major study in English on the competition among East and West Germany to help shape ‘Third World’ societies through humanitarian aid and healthcare policies. Hong’s focus on the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Algeria, the Congo, and Zanzibar provides surprising and genuinely new perspectives on half a century of global conflict. This rich and wide-ranging, yet nuanced study will be of great interest also to researchers in the history of medicine, and the U.N., and its specialized agencies and philanthropy.” V. R. Berghahn, Columbia University “This is an inspired study of the contest between the socialist and capitalist modernizing projects of East and West Germany carried out in Africa and Asia through humanitarian aid projects deeply flawed by racist assumptions translated into the language of underdevelopment. Young-sun Hong has delved into a rich source base and emerged with a sophisticated cultural and social history of the neocolonial encounter among migrants, health workers, and ordinary people in transnational networks that transcended the framework of the Cold War. The book exemplifies the best kind of new scholarship in transnational history and presents a persuasive challenge to traditional Cold War historiography.” Max Paul Friedman, American University

The Emergence of

Cold War Germany, the Third World,

This book examines competition and collaboration among Western powers, the socialist bloc, and the Third World for control over humanitarian aid programs during the Cold War. Young-sun Hong’s analysis reevaluates the established parameters of German history. On the one hand, global humanitarian efforts functioned as an arena for a three-way political power struggle. On the other hand, they gave rise to transnational spaces that allowed for multidimensional social and cultural encounters. Hong paints an unexpected view of the global humanitarian regime: Algerian insurgents flown to East Germany for medical care, barefoot ChineseE dI T E d doctors in Tanzania, and West and East German doctors working together in the Congo. She also provides a rich analysis of the experiences of African trainees and Asian nurses in the two Germanys. This book brings an urgently needed historical perspective to contemporary debates on global governance, which largely concern humanitarianism, global health, South–North relationships, and global migration.

human rights in history The right of self-determination of peoples holds out the promise of sovereign statehood for all peoples and a domination-free international order. But it also harbors the danger of state fragmentation that can threaten international stability if claims of self-determination lead to secession. Covering both the late eighteenth- and early nineteenthcentury independence movements in the Americas and the twentiethcentury decolonization worldwide, this book examines the conceptual and political history of the right of self-determination of peoples. It also addresses the political contexts in which the right and concept were formulated and the practices developed to restrain its potentially anarchic character; its inception in anticolonialism, nationalism, and the labor movement; its instrumentalization at the end of the First World War in a formidable duel that Wilson lost to Lenin; its abuse by Hitler; the path after the Second World War to its recognition as a human right in 1966; and its continuing impact after decolonization.
