By: Genevieve Souillac (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Human Rights in Crisis uniquely documents recent ideas on democracy and human rights in the current French intellectual, social, and political context, arguing that the French emphasis on the interdependence between democracy and human rights as a tool for the critique and renewal of democracy is a valid contribution to the global debate on the political philosophy and the ethics of human rights. Centering on the work of four prominent, contemporary French political philosophers, Blandine Kriegel, Marcel Gauchet, Luc Ferry, and Etienne Balibar, Genevieve Souillac expertly examines the themes of contestation and reform that are the driving force in the French approach to democracy and human rights.
Genevieve Souillac is associate lecturer in the Department of French Studies, School of European, Asian, and Middle Eastern Languages at the University of Sydney.
