This innovative multidisciplinary collection brings together the latest research on human rights in the Asian region, by leading scholars with a deep familiarity with the languages and cultures of the region. The contributors bring a range of disciplinary approaches, or 'ways of knowing' to the study of human rights: history, memory studies, gender and sexuality studies, cultural studies, translation studies, development sociology and political economy. Issues canvassed include linguistic rights, debates on prenatal testing, campaigns for redress of past wrongs, labour rights, 'voluntourism', sexuality, and modes of human rights advocacy.
This book was published as a special issue of Asian Studies Review.
