This title was first published in 2000. This text tackles a wide range of issues relating to rights, citizenship and sovereignty in a European context. Such issues are of concern elsewhere with regeads to shifting conceptions and practices in international human rights. This book looks at the question of how much European rights and human rights interact and how much they must do so if Europe as a whole is to be an arena of "belonging" and effective participation for all its residents. This book reflects the focus on rights in Europe, looking at debates concerning immigration and minority rights, concerns about social exclusion, social protection, war crimes, human rights, women's rights and other topics.
