With the global economic collapse, the rise of the BRICS, the post-intervention chaos in Libya, the migration crisis in Europe, and the regional conflagration sparked by the conflict in Syria, the need to protect human rights has arguably never been greater. In light of the precipitous decline in global respect for human rights and the eruption or escalation of intra-state crises across the world, this book asks "what is the future of human rights protection?". Seeking to avoid both denial and fatalism, this book thus aims to:

  • examine the principles at the very foundation of the debate on human rights;
  • diagnose the causes of the decline of liberal internationalism so as to offer guiding lessons for future initiatives;
  • identify those practices and developments that can, and should, be preserved in the new era;
  • question the parameters of the contemporary debate and advance perspectives that aim to identify the contours of future ideas and practices that may offer a way forward.
