Contemporary human rights ideas by B. G Ramcharan( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In international relations today, there are serious debates about problems of global terrorism and security, extreme poverty, relations among people of differing religious or beliefs, genocide and gross violations of human rights, and global governance. Leaders of government and civil society, and the academic world, are in need of policy and normative frameworks for treading the way forward in responding to these global challenges. Contemporary human rights ideas provide the frame of reference and the anchor points for addressing these issues. Human rights provide benchmarks for the conduct of governments and the management of international relations. Building on the principles of the United Nations Charter they provide the indispensable normative and policy framework of the international community for determining the legitimacy of governments and for arbitrating issues of justice in our times. Contemporary Human Rights Ideas provides a short and accessible introduction to the key human rights concepts, the current debates about human rights, strategies and institutions for taking forward the global implementation of human rights, and the core messages that need to be imparted to students and the public at large.--Publisher description

<EM>The UN Human Rights Council</EM> provides a detailed insight into this important organization. The UN was founded in the hope that lasting peace would be built on the foundations of human rights and economic and social progress. In 2006 the Commission on Human Rights was replaced by the Human Rights Council as the principal UN body concerned with human rights. It is even possible that the council might eventually become a principal organ of the world organization. The Human Rights Council is already the subject of major public interest and controversy. The Council has been criticized for having dropped some of the protection strategies of the former commission and this book aims to present a balanced view of the council, outlining its current role, acknowledging where it has made positive contributions, highlighting the deficiencies, and identifying options for improving the body's future work. This book is destined to become the leading text on the Human Rights Council and will be essential reading for all those concerned with the future of international relations international organizations and human rights

Human rights and U.N. peace operations : Yugoslavia by B. G Ramcharan( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique book, one of the first of its kind, discusses how human rights actually featured in UN peace operations in the deadly conflicts in the former Yugoslavia between 1992 and 1996. It is based on original materials in the possession of the author, who was Director of the International Conference on the Former Yugoslava from 1992 to 1996 and also served as Director of the Office of the UN Special Representative in charge of all peacemaking, peacekeeping, and humanitarian operations in the region. The book brings out the strategic centrality of human rights in the wide-ranging humanitarian operations. It shows how the peacekeepers built in a human rights dimension for the first time in the history of UN peacekeeping. And it shows how the peace negotiators sought to build their peace proposals on the foundations of human rights. It shows the peacemakers advocating justice for the victims while proceeding with their negotiating efforts. The great value of this book is that the author, who was personally involved in all of the activities he writes about, shows how human rights were instilled in practice in UN peace operations over a period of some four years and it also reveals, for the first time, some innovative ideas advanced that might be helpful in future peace operations
