Rising Powers & Human Rights

Under construction

Another area of research interest focuses on the role of rising powers within the international human rights regime. Much attention has been given to ‘emerging powers’ such as Brazil, China, India, and South Africa and what effects their growing influence has on the present and future management of issues of global concern. But there has been no systematic research on the meaning and wider implications of the rise of non-Western states in the issue-area of human rights. To this end I have recently written on Brazilian foreign policy and human rights.
