The 21st Century is highly complex. The return on investment, be it public sector or corporate is measured in terms of material returns than in terms of human development. Human beings are most neglected. Now the question is - "Does the declaration of Human Rights by the UN ensure Human Rights?" Respect for Human Rights demands not only Awareness of Human Rights, but also, favorable attitude towards Human Rights. The vision of Human Rights Declaration by the UN will be realized only when these Rights are internalized and valuably inclined by the entire globe.The present volume includes the doctoral work of Ms. Mamta Sheth on designing, developing and implementing an Educational Program on Human Rights for Pre-Service and In-Service Teachers. The study has very well demonstrated that how the understanding of Human Rights was enhanced among the Teachers. The Educational Program on Human Rights was found to be effective in developing favorable attitudes of the Teachers. Also, the Program developed by the investigator could significantly initiate the teachers in the areas of Case Studies on Human Rights. Hope the State, Society, Judiciary, Education and all will value this volume.

United Nations The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

33 руб.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (10 December 1948 at Palais de Chaillot, Paris). The Declaration arose directly from the experience of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. It consists of 30 articles which have been elaborated in subsequent international treaties, regional human rights instruments, national constitutions and laws. The International Bill of Human Rights consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and its two Optional Protocols. In 1966 the General Assembly adopted the two detailed Covenants, which complete the International Bill of Human Rights; and in 1976, after the Covenants had been ratified by a sufficient number of individual nations, the Bill took on the force of international law.

Burke A. Hendrix Ownership, Authority, and Self-Determination. Moral Principles and Indigenous Rights Claims

5164 руб.
Much controversy has existed over the claims of Native Americans and other indigenous peoples that they have a right-based on original occupancy of land, historical transfers of sovereignty, and principles of self-determination-to a political status separate from the states in which they now find themselves embedded. How valid are these claims on moral grounds?Burke Hendrix tackles these thorny questions in this book. Rather than focusing on the legal and constitutional status of indigenous nations within the states now ruling them, he starts at a more basic level, interrogating fundamental justifications for political authority itself. He shows that historical claims of land ownership and prior sovereignty cannot provide a sufficient basis for challenging the authority of existing states, but that our natural moral duties to aid other persons in danger can justify rights to political separation from states that fail to protect their citizens as they should.Actual attempts at political separation must be carefully managed through well-defined procedural mechanisms, however, to foster extensive democratic deliberation about the nature of the political changes at stake. Using such procedures, Hendrix argues, indigenous peoples should be able to withdraw politically from the states currently ruling them, even to the point of choosing full independence.

"... a solid contribution to the understanding of the relationship between Amazonian notions and contemporary international legal concepts of human rights ... (that) could become a reference text to be used in similar negotiations with other indigenous peoples." · L. E. Belaunde, University of DurhamThe Arakmbut are an indigenous people who live in the Madre de Dios region of the southeastern Peruvian rain forest. Since their first encounters with missionaries in the 1950s, they have shown resilience and a determination to affirm their identity in the face of many difficulties. During the last fifteen years, Arakmbut survival has been under threat from a goldrush that has attracted hundreds of colonists onto their territories. This trilogy of books traces the ways in which the Arakmbut overcome the dangers that surround them: their mythology and cultural strength; their social flexibility; and their capacity to incorporate non-indigenous concepts and activities into their defence strategies. Each area is punctuated by the constant presence of the invisible spirit, which provides a seamless theme connecting the books to eachother.Over a period of about two decades the indigenous movement has grown into an international force, making a marked impact on the United Nations and the International Labor Organization. In this volume, the author looks at the growing consciousness among the Arakmbut who are increasingly demanding that their rights to their territories and resou...

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: 1,6, The Australian National University, 106 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This thesis aims to reflect upon some of the bigger questions ofinternational development. It investigates a general relationship betweenthe World Bank vis a vis demands made by indigenous peoples, namelyquestioning of how to advance development goals in ways that uphold thejustice needs of minorities such as indigenous peoples, further how toachieve a just balance between national prosperity and minority survival,and more broadly, how to further balance the complexities of global, localand national interests. This thesis seeks a stronger middle groundbetween the Bank and indigenous peoples and focuses, on theimportance of deliberation, in general, and the principle of free priorinformed consent, in particular.The argument put forward here is normative and envisages emancipatingfrom the singularity of the modern development paradigm in opening adeliberative space that provides for diversity and difference to flourishinstead. Here specifically acknowledging indigenous peoples values andinterests as equally important in development, this thesis supports adeliberate and affirmative approach to justice. This of course does notmark the prevailing top-down, state-centric and neo-liberal developmentparadigm as malign, rather it envisages exchanging its power...

The exploration and development of natural resources of sovereign states is often carried out by multinational oil companies or in most cases in conjunction with the host state. At the start of the exploration period, it may be impracticable to relocate the indigenous peoples living in communities where explorations are carried out. However, these people live to witness different negative impacts as a result of the activities and operations of the companies. This has heralded a difficult relationship between several indigenous peoples and multinational oil corporations in different countries. This book, therefore, uses a case study of two selected indigenous peoples in both Nigeria and Peru to provide new ways of applying corporate social responsibility to bring an exciting relationship

Mass media can play a crucial role for indigenous peoples to keep them within their own cultural identity. Media can be a source of information and knowledge of indigenousness for indigenous peoples from generation to generation. It is possible only if representatives from indigenous communities are emphasized to participate in media. Secondly, the media professionals from indigenous communities should not be influenced by majority mechanisms. Hence, indigenous participation and their executive power in media are vital for empowerment. There is a universal quotation- 'voices are heard when they are spoken'. Indigenous peoples should speak themselves to make their voices to hear. Basically, community FM radios have common purpose of inclusive participation to bring the 'voice of the voiceless' on air. I have focused this research on evaluating the implementation of cited goals of those community FM radios in a district (Kavrepalanchowk) of Nepal.

Academic Paper from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: International Organisations, grade: -, Stellenbosch Universitiy, language: English, abstract: Facing global challenges like armed conflicts, climate change and scarcity of resources, the UN as a platform for the international cooperation and global peace still is of majour significance. During the last decades, the focus of its work has shifted to legally non-binding agendas, most recently the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which stand in the focus of their time and address sustainability. The greatest weakness of the work of the United Nations is its poor enforcement due to legally non-binding documents. This is also a weak point of the Sustainable Development Goals. As the agenda is contained within a legally non-binding UN Resolution, it is at the specific state's discretion whether and to what extent the SDG are implemented. In these terms, the Goals show a deficit compared to binding human rights treaties within the UN human rights system. This system is based upon the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), which is together known as the Bill of Rights and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. The question arises, whether and how existent legally binding UN sources could support the implementation of the non-binding Sustain...

A volume in International Advances in Education:Global Initiatives for Equity and Social JusticeSeries Editors: Elinor L. Brown, University of Kentucky; Rhonda G. Craven, University of Western Sydney;and George McLean, Catholic Universities of AmericaDemocratizing educational access and building capacity in developing countries and amongst indigenous peoples in developed countries may beelusive but are hopeful goals. Many developing countries are striving to reengineer their incoherent education systems at a time when they aremost vulnerable, particularly with susceptibility to natural disasters, political unrests, and economic instabilities (UNESCO, 2007). Similarly,indigenous peoples in developed countries are seeking more control over education as they consider the long‐term effects of educational policiesthat have been forced on them.Research on education and social change in developing countries has a long history (Glewwe, 2002;Hanushek, 1995; Sider, 2011). However, there is limited research on educational capacity‐buildingin developing countries such as Kenya, Honduras, Haiti, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Peru, China, andThailand. Further, the educational frameworks by which Indigenous peoples (Māori, Canada's FirstNations, and American Indian/Alaska Natives) have been educated have some significant similaritiesto those encountered in developing countries.

The "technocratic revolution" that ushered in the age of neoliberalism in Mexico under the presidency of Carlos Salinas (1988-1994) helped create the conditions for, and the constraints on, a resurgence of activism among the indigenous communities of Mexico. This resurgence was given further impetus by the protests in 1992 against the official celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of Columbus's landing in America and by the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas in 1994. Local, regional, and national indigenous organizations formed to pursue a variety of causes-cultural, economic, legal, political, and social-to benefit Indian peoples in all regions of the country. Folkloric Poverty analyzes the crisis these indigenous political groups faced in Mexico at the turn of the twenty-first century. It tells the story of an indigenous peoples' movement in the state of Guerrero, the Consejo Guerrerense 500 Años de Resistencia Indígena, that gained unprecedented national and international prominence in the 1990s and yet was defunct by 2002. The fate of the Consejo points to the ways that Mexican multiculturalism‚ indigenismo, combined with neoliberal reforms to keep Indians in a political quarantine, effectively limiting their actions and safely isolating their demands on the state.

When researchers want to study indigenous populations they are dependent upon the highly variable way in which states or territories enumerate, categorise and differentiate indigenous people. In this volume, anthropologists, historians, demographers and sociologists have come together for the first time to examine the historical and contemporary construct of indigenous people in a number of fascinating geographical contexts around the world, including Canada, the United States, Colombia, Russia, Scandinavia, the Balkans and Australia. Using historical and demographical evidence, the contributors explore the creation and validity of categories for enumerating indigenous populations, the use and misuse of ethnic markers, micro-demographic investigations, and demographic databases, and thereby show how the situation varies substantially between countries.Per Axelsson is a Senior Researcher of the Centre for Sami Research at Umeå University, Sweden.

They play a crucial role in the promotion and protection of human rights at the national level. Within their broad mandate, they advise governments on various human rights issues, monitor the implementation of international human rights instruments, promote the harmonisation of national law and practice with the international human rights standards, disseminate human rights information, cooperate with regional and international human rights bodies, and remedy human rights violations.However, National Human Rights Institutions are primarily domestic instruments, they increasingly engage with the international human rights mechanisms. In the last 20 years, they became the practical link between international human rights standards and their concrete application at the national level. The institutions' interaction with the UN Charter-based and Treaty-based Bodies is a relatively new phenomenon and as such, has its obstacles.In order to clarify the nature and ways of co-operation between NHRIs and the UN human rights monitoring mechanisms, this Handbook sets out the characteris...

When Serbia in 2008 filled the request before the ICJ on whether, the unilateral declaration of independence by the of Kosovo was in accordance with International law, many authors were sceptical. The ICJ delivered its advisory opinion on 22 July 2010, that "the declaration of independence of the 17th of February 2008 did not violate general international law." The author hails as many of the countries argued defending the Kosovo's recognition that in international law there is no rule that prohibits the declaration of independence, or secession. The author gives strong arguments as the most of the countries that already recognized Kosovo are hailing the decision of ICJ and saying it was "unique" and does not set a precedent. As of 30 September 2010, seventy states have recognized formally Kosovar declaration of independence.

Despite the denial of sovereignty, the world's more than 350 million indigenous peoples continue to assert aboriginal title to significant portions of the world's remaining bio-diversity. As a result, conflicts between tribal peoples and nation states are on the increase. Today, many of the societies that gave the field of anthropology its empirical foundations and unique global vision of a diverse and evolving humanity are being destroyed as a result of national economic, political, and military policies.The main focus of this volume is on the internal dynamics and political strategies of hunting and gathering societies in areas of self-determination and self-representation. More specifically, it examines areas such as warfare and conflict resolution, resistance, identity and the state, demography and ecology, gender and representation, and world view and religion. It raises a large number of major issues of common concerns and therefore makes important reading for all those interested in human rights issues, ethnic conflict, grassroots development and community organization, and environmental topics.Megan Biesele is President, School of Expressive Culture, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.

It highlights the close link between capitalist industrialization and environmental degradation and explains how this consequently leads to human rights violations.This research tackles human rights approach to climate change with a special focus on international human rights instruments mainly the two international covenants, the ICCPR and the ICESCR, it seeks to understand whether they impose international obligations on states to protect human rights from the adverse effects of climate change and how those imposed duties can be enforced to effectively protect people's rights.Unfortunately, this paper will reach to the conclusion that the existing human rights law does not adequately protect human rights from the lethal threat of climate change, due to the absence of a universally recognized right to a healthy environment, moreover, despite the possibility of the extraterritorial application of the ICESCR, the political will of states to cooperate under the provisions of the covenant to face the issue of climate change seems to be also absent.

he story of a people overcoming colonization Volume 2 in the American Indian Law and Policy SeriesThe Choctaws in Oklahoma begins with the Choctaws' removal from Mississippi to Indian Territory in the 1830s and then traces the history of the tribe's subsequent efforts to retain and expand its rights and to reassert tribal sovereignty in the late twentieth century.As Clara Sue Kidwell tells it, the Choctaws' story illuminates a key point in contemporary scholarship on the history of American Indians: that they were not passive victims of colonization and did not assimilate quietly into American society. Adapting to the very structures imposed on them by their colonizers, tribal politicians quickly learned to use the rhetoric of dependency on the government, but they also demanded justice in the form of fulfillment of their treaty rights.

Georg Henriksen Hunters in the Barrens. The Naskapi on the Edge of the White Man's World

3352 руб.
This comprehensive study of the Naskapi Indians of Labrador is based on an anthropologist's life with them between 1966 and 1968, when families still followed the traditional pattern of hunting on the barrens during the winter and returning to their costal settlements in the summer. Now the Naskapi live in coastal settlements; no longer in possession of their own culture, they have become sedentaries under white tutelage. This description of two antithetical worlds provides valuable insights for anyone interested in contemporary native rights issues.Georg Henriksen was Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Bergen (Norway). He first carried out extensive fieldwork among the Innu in 1966-68, and for the rest of his life kept returning to Labrador. It was his deep concern for the future of the Innu people, and that of other indigenous peoples, that drove him to participate in the founding of IWGIA (International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs). He always retained a special fondness for the Innu people, and a great personal, professional and political interest in their affairs.

The United Nations is the major international organization empowered with the mandate to ensure respect for fundamental human rights for everybody everywhere. It has an obligation to combat terrorism from the standpoint of international human rights. However the fight against terrorism cannot be won by the UN alone. Therefore, there is the need for cooperation between states and the UN. States are faced with the challenge of responding to the threat of terrorism on one hand and upholding international human rights standards on the other hand. One of the fundamental rights mostly affected in the fight against terrorism is due process rights. The detainment of terrorist suspects at the US naval base, Guantanamo Bay has generated a very heated debate in the international community. This work will reveal whether detainees held at Guantanamo Bay have been given access to the due process of the law by the US government. It also provides an overview of how the UN handles terrorism. It concludes by providing policy recommendations for governments and scholars for consideration in combating terrorism.

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: A, Lund University, course: International Human Rights Law, language: English, abstract: Taking in to consideration the countless human rights violations and impunity in Africa, there is not a shred of doubt about the dire need for effective human rights protection mechanisms at continental level. This concern has mainly increased due to the Africa Commission's poor track record of enforcement of human rights norms in the region. Hence, it is in the effort to cure the ills suffered by this system that an endeavor to build a regional human rights judicial organ has been embarked on. The process of establishment of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights (ACtJHR) is also the extension of this effort which partially became successful with the transitional operation of the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights. The primary purpose of this study is, thus, to show how the ACtJHR would be relevant in promoting and protecting human rights in the continent. An attempt is also made to investigate whether the new Court will be a solution to fill the gaps left out by the African Commission in the regional human rights enforcement mechanism. In doing so, the study has made a thorough analysis of the prospects and challenges of the ACtJHR from different vantage points. It has also addressed the possible interaction between the two main regional huma...

Tatiana Bulgakova Nanai Shamanic Culture in Indigenous Discourse

3777 руб.
This book on Nanai shamanic culture is based on first-hand information provided by shamans and recorded in the years between 1980 and 2012, a time of rapid socio-cultural change in Russia. It sheds light on the lively indigenous discourse in which social factors such as the splitting of society into different paternal lineages relates to spiritual troubles that Nanai people experience as collective 'shamanic disease.' But inter-clan confrontations are not only mediated in shamanic rituals, as these must not be separated from folk narratives, dances and other forms of art. Furthermore, the book provides profound insights into the plurality of contradictory discourses on indigenous knowledge as well as those delivered in non-indigenous contexts. The latter arose or became more intense in the Soviet and post-Soviet periods, and often led to experiments in new shamanic practices.

Linny examines the mining industry's efforts from 1984 to 1987 to influence public policy concerning land rights of native peoples under the Australian Labor Party government of Prime Minister Bob Hawke. Libby provides a detailed case study of interest group politics in a federal, multiparty parliamentary system with weak parties, focusing on the tactics, strategy, and impact of the mining industry on land policy... A gold mine of raw data, this book contributes to the literature of interest group competition as it affects factional struggle in political parties." ---Journal of PoliticsPrevious studies of the mining industry's influence on Australian policy have been forced to rely on informed speculation about the industry's actions.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Politics - International Politics - General and Theories, , language: English, abstract: The idea of business and human rights is an emerging concept of international law. Human rights are greatly influenced, positively or negatively, by the business activities of transnational corporations, industries and business enterprises. Consequently, business and children's rights are comparatively new and evolving agenda in international human rights law. Children's rights both as right holders and stakeholders have been affected by business activities. This article focuses on two basic questions. Firstly: how business activities affect the rights of children, especially child labourer's rights in the context of Bangladesh; and secondly: whether the laws and regulations of domestic and international law is sufficient to redress the violation of children's rights. The article's premise is to find what should be the role of different actors in connection to the rights of children affected by the activities of business. The article concentrates on the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human rights, the UNICEF Global Compact and Save the Children "Children's rights and Business Principles known as CRB Principles" (May-2012) and the Committee on the Rights of the Child General Comment no.16 which deals with the obligations of states in relation to business and children's rights, Convention ...

Women's Human Rights: Seeking Gender Justice in a Globalising Age explores the emergence of transnational, UN-oriented, feminist advocacy for womens human rights, especially over the past three decades. It identifies the main feminist influences that have shaped the movement liberal, radical, third world and cosmopolitan and exposes how the Western, legalist, state-centric, and liberal biases of mainstream human rights discourse impede the realisation of human rights in womens lives everywhere. The book traces the evolution of the womens human rights movement through an examination of its key issues, debates, and practical interventions in international law and policy arenas. This includes efforts to: Develop global gender equality norms via the UN Womens Convention Frame violence against women as a human rights issue Address gender-based crimes in conflict situations, include women in conflict resolution and post-conflict reconstruction, and challenge new forms of militarism Highlight the gendered human rights dimensions of widening inequalities in a context of neo-liberal globalisation Develop human rights responses to anti-feminist fundamentalist movements with a focus on reproductive and sexual rights Ultimately, Women's Human Rights reaffirms a commitment to critically reinterpreted universal human rights principles and demonstrates the vital role that bottom-up, transnational movements play in making them a reality in women's lives.

The right to adequate food (RtF)is a human right of all people that emphasises freedom from hunger and malnutrition. It is internationally recognised by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural rights; both of which Uganda has ratified. This book assesses the RtF situation of slum dwellers of Banda Parish (one of the slums of Kampala City,Uganda)and shows that whereas Uganda is bound by international obligations on the RtF,slum dwellers are yet to realize this right. This is occuring against the background that the RtF is "fairly" protected by objectives XIV and XXII under the social and economic objectives of the 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda. The assessment is based on agreed upon RtF indicators as reported in the project "Measurement Developments in the Realization of the Right to Food by Means of Indicators: The IBSA - Procedure". This book is generally intended for policy makers, civil society organizations, UN agencies, other humanitarian agencies,academicians and all individuals involved in advocating for the human right to adequate food.

Reflections of the Media archives the chronology of the media, from the first manifestations of primitive anthropogenic communication on cave walls, to the presupposed actualization of a greater than human super-intelligence, realizing a technological singularity. Reflections of the Media is an archaeological investigation through the eons of human existence aimed at discovering the origins of the media and their impact on civilizations of both antiquity and modernity. Through accounts of ancient inceptions of mass media, the five major media revolutions (print, film, radio, television, and personal computing), and the controversial highlight of a technological singularity, Reflections of the Media investigates the formulation of mass media as both a truthful and deceptive force, offering a dialectical conversation in the discourse of critical media theory.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2006 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, grade: A-, Victoria University of Wellington (Faculty of Law), 47 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Indigenous people often know a lot about the healing properties or other useful characteristics of their indigenous plants. This knowledge usually has been passed on within the indigenous community from generation to generation and is therefore regarded as traditional knowledge. This traditional knowledge is of great value for the pharmaceutical industry. Accordingly, it has been explored, used as the basis for subsequently patented in-ventions, and sometimes misappropriated by pharmaceutical companies from the "developed" world.This essay seeks to provide an overview of the problems and issues that arise where traditional knowl-edge meets the "Western" intellectual property regime. The questions that are sought to be answered are: Why should traditional knowledge be protected as intellectual property and how could this be done? Many approaches have been made, both on an international and a national level. Several of these solutions will be presented and discussed in this essay. It will be seen that already existing intellectual property rights are not suitable for the protection of traditional knowledge. Compared with this, the implementation of safeguards within patent applica-tion proceedings seems to be more appropriate a...
