Introduction

It is not uncommon to hear the phrase 'human rights' on the news, in books, or even in conversations with friends, family, or colleagues. Many of today's political struggles are framed around human rights and their attainment. From conflicts to social movements, human rights have become a common ground in which to express the will to change and challenge the status quo.

José Zalaquett and Juan Francisco Lobo draw from several years of experience in the field of international law and human rights. Using their hands-on experience with several international committees and NGOs, Zalaquett and Lobo present the most important things to know about human rights. We learn about the history and evolution of human rights, the main documents that protect them, and the main issues that need further regulation from the perspectives of civil strife and formal legal institutions.
