Human Rights at Risk
Global Governance, American Power, and the Future of Dignity
Rutgers University Press 2022
Human Rights at Risk: Global Governance, American Power, and the Future of Dignity (Rutgers University Press, 2022) is a fascinating book that brings together social scientists, legal scholars, and humanities scholars from both the Global North and Global South to provide a challenge to understandings about normative and empirical claims to human rights. Salvador Santino F. Regilme Jr. and Irene Hadiprayitno's edited collection questions the effectiveness of international human rights institutions, identifying thematic blind spots and providing fresh analysis for a way forward in the Post-Trump era.
I very much enjoyed having Dr. Salvador Santino F. Regilme Jr. back on the show; the discussion was enriching and will challenge human rights scholars to move beyond their comfort zone to seek ways to better protect human rights at risk. You can listen to our previous interview, about his book, Aid Imperium: United States Foreign Policy and Human Rights in Post-Cold War Southeast Asia, here.
