Vol. 5 Núm. 9: (JANUARY - JUNE) 2019
Various authors have identified the field of human rights as fertile grounds for interdisciplinary work. A frequent starting point for the study of universal rights is the field of international law (and with that, international relations), yet the focus of this issue is national and thus not primarily concerned with the international aspect of HR. The analysis borrows much from a sociological approach, since the focus is often on “the societal processes and relations that shape and define how human rights are generated, defined and employed in specific social and political arenas”. Besides law and sociology, our interdisciplinary assemble of authors employs perspectives from communication sciences and political science.
