Summary

Human Rights, Power and Non-Governmental Actionexamines the interrelationship between struggles for human rights and the dynamics of power. It focuses on how local and national struggles for rights have been constrained by power relations and structural inequalities, as well as the extent to which non-governmental action has been able to challenge, alter or transform power structures at both local and national levels. Utilising a comparative approach between seven case studies, the book provides empirically grounded studies leading to new theoretical understanding of the interrelationships between human rights struggles, power and poverty reduction. Human Rights, Power and Non-Governmental Action will be of interest to students and scholars of human rights politics, power, development, and governance.
