Who needs human rights? Cultural studies and public institutions

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The writer envisages a “relocation” of Cultural Studies in a closer relation to public institutions active in international struggles for social justice. By situating the discipline in relation to formalized “institutional rules of engagement” — in particular those of international human rights law — He envisages a metamorphosis of its worldly practice into one that perhaps invests as much in professional training and public participation as it does in critique.
