Nathanson Visiting Fellow Sanja Dragic published a book “Post-Backlash Human Rights Law”

Post-Backlash Human Rights Law

What are the legal consequences of the political phenomenon of human rights backlash? After providing a novel definition of the phenomenon, Sanja Dragic explores some of the rules generated as a reaction to the backlash—“the post-backlash human rights law”. Three case studies meticulously analyze the legal conversations between the opposing states and the global human rights community before the new rules appeared on the international scene. The picture that emerges from these insights is of an unequal relationship between the opposing sides and the post-backlash law which sustains the afflicted structure.
