Details

This book applies the ancient wisdom of the oppressed to the achievement of greater respect for human rights. It is the basis for a set of tools that the powerless can use to make the best of bad situations. One important part of these tools is the worksheet system, which is a knowledge transfer system. Another is a set of case studies illustrating how it can and has been used. It provides a suitable foundation for the analysis and design of overall sets of actions to achieve those goal, introducing the theoretical foundations of strategy and strategic intervention. It includes case studies for national and international actors.

These include: an individual ‘s fight for his own human rights, Edward Snowden; a subnational group’s strategy in dealing with a state, the Committee of Concerned Scientists and the People’s Republic of China; a supra-national group’s strategy in the supra-national system, Amnesty International and the defense of freedom of expression; a state and a group of states, Poland and the UN system of human rights; a group of states and a supranational group, Human Rights Watch and the UN; a multiplayer, multilevel strategy in the supra-national system, Amnesty International and women’s rights; and a group of states, the EU and the UN on human rights 1995-2015.
