The revised edition of this insightful book examines current human rights issues and shows how a broader understanding of human rights can be used to ground a form of practice that is central to social work, community development and broader human services. It draws on the 'three generations' tradition of human rights explored in the earlier edition while also recognising the limitations of this approach and reconstructing human rights in a broader perspective. The book extends the idea of human rights beyond the realm of theoretical analysis and into the arena of professional practice and social action, demonstrating how social work practice can be enhanced by an understanding of human rights theory. This is set within the context of current debates about globalisation and the need to incorporate an internationalist viewpoint into social work practice. This illuminating study presents an important perspective on the challenge of promoting international human rights.
