Religion and the Global Politics of Human Rights

March 21, 2011
In Religion and the Global Politics of Human Rights, editors Thomas Banchoff and Robert Wuthnow bring together leading scholars to explore the religious politics of human rights across the world's major regions, political systems, and faith traditions. Contributors like Pratap Bhanu Mehta, Alfred Stepan, Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad, and Robert W. Hefner probe whether human rights are universal or culturally bound, the role of democracy in protecting human rights, and whether it might be legitimate for external actors to impose their understandings of human rights upon particular countries. The book also focuses on controversial topics like human rights in Islam, Falun Gong in China, and religion in the former Soviet Union, offering policymakers advice for dealing with the challenging interaction of human rights and religion in practice.
