Human Rights and Private Wrongs
Constructing Global Civil Society
By Alison Brysk
Published December 25th 2004 by Routledge – 168 pages
Series: Global Horizons
Human Rights and Private Wrongs breaks new ground by considering a series of fascinating issues that are normally ignored by human rights specialists because they are too "private" to consider as policy issues: children's labor migration; refugee policy towards unaccompanied minors; financial matters of investor and business responsibility; and complex questions involving access to the benefits of pharmaceutical research, transnational organ trafficking, and the control over genetic research.
