Human Rights and Peace, fourth in the South Asian Peace Studies series, is a useful contribution to the expanding body of literature on the subject…This volume is a timely contribution, both to the theoretical literature on peace studies, and to empirical practices of civil liberties and human rights movements.
The book contains powerful accounts of the human rights challenges in the South Asian region; wars and conflicts, inter-ethnic disputes, the plight of displaced persons and the terror of extra-judicial killings and apparently state-sponsored violence.
This is a timely volume of essays, significant in the context of the present times of unprecedented turmoil and a stealthy erosion of the rights and liberties of an ever-increasing majority, who as the editor rightly points out, continue to be rendered ‘ rightless’, even amidst an ever-expanding range of human rights instruments and laws. This collection of essays paints a broad canvas of the multifaceted interplay of rights and peace and underscores the inextricable link between the two.
This book is an insightful resource for students and researchers of peace studies, human rights, politics and international relations. It s also an invaluable idea bank for activists, think tanks and policy makers who seek to understand the evolving paradigm of peace and human rights.
