As the influence of sociologists' and sociological insights has greater impacts on human rights scholarship, so do key sociological concerns with groups, collective identity, social inequality, and collective action. The global struggle for human rights has been, fundamentally, a struggle by oppressed groups against the structures of their oppression. As such, sociological work into the experiences of women, racial and ethnic minorities, children, LGBTQ communities, the mentally ill, and others helps us understand the promises and challenges of pursuing human rights. This book presents the fundamental insights gleaned from the scholarship on groups in society for the study of, understanding of, and, ultimately, realization of human rights.
