TG03 Human Rights and Global Justice
Established in 2006
Human rights encompass political, economic, social, group, cultural, democratic and environmental rights. The scope of human rights is potentially very broad, including popular democracy, movements for social and economic justice, the advance of sustainable communities and societies, civil society, as well as formal international law dealing with crimes against humanity and genocide. The Thematic Group on Human Rights and Global Justice will explore a pluralist notion of the conceptualization and operationalization of human rights and welfare.
The field of human rights is expansive yet perhaps in its infancy. Sociologists have already made significant contributions to the human rights field, but we can do much more, and people all over the worldwill benefit from our research. The Thematic Group onHuman Rights and Global Justice will explore human rights and social justice in theoretical, empirical, and policy research, seeking to develop the field and improve human welfare.
