The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (10 December 1948 at Palais de Chaillot, Paris). The Declaration arose directly from the experience of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. It consists of 30 articles which have been elaborated in subsequent international treaties, regional human rights instruments, national constitutions and laws. The International Bill of Human Rights consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and its two Optional Protocols. In 1966 the General Assembly adopted the two detailed Covenants, which complete the International Bill of Human Rights; and in 1976, after the Covenants had been ratified by a sufficient number of individual nations, the Bill took on the force of international law.
Women's Human Rights: Seeking Gender Justice in a Globalising Age explores the emergence of transnational, UN-oriented, feminist advocacy for womens human rights, especially over the past three decades. It identifies the main feminist influences that have shaped the movement liberal, radical, third world and cosmopolitan and exposes how the Western, legalist, state-centric, and liberal biases of mainstream human rights discourse impede the realisation of human rights in womens lives everywhere. The book traces the evolution of the womens human rights movement through an examination of its key issues, debates, and practical interventions in international law and policy arenas. This includes efforts to: Develop global gender equality norms via the UN Womens Convention Frame violence against women as a human rights issue Address gender-based crimes in conflict situations, include women in conflict resolution and post-conflict reconstruction, and challenge new forms of militarism Highlight the gendered human rights dimensions of widening inequalities in a context of neo-liberal globalisation Develop human rights responses to anti-feminist fundamentalist movements with a focus on reproductive and sexual rights Ultimately, Women's Human Rights reaffirms a commitment to critically reinterpreted universal human rights principles and demonstrates the vital role that bottom-up, transnational movements play in making them a reality in women's lives.

В своей книге Чарльз Эпп анализирует, как на протяжении последних десятилетий в организационном управлении США усиливалась роль формальных правил. Он показывает, что одновременное давление гражданского общество через мобилизацию судебной системы и бюрократический страх гражданской ответственности толкали американскую систему управления к принятию модели формализованной подотчетности или подотчетности, подкрепленной формальным правом (legalized accountability). Отвечая на вопрос, как возможны социальные изменения, Эпп фокусируется на микропроцессах, анализируя, каким образом изменение бюрократических правил сосуществует с изменением правовых норм. Для этого автор показывает, что мобилизация права отдельными активистами и гражданским обществом в совершенно разных сферах толкает изменения снизу. Книга Эппа охватывает почти полувековой период. При помощи тщательного анализа документов и интервью с участниками процессов, происходивших в американском праве и управлении, исследователь разворачивает картину постепенной трансформации поведения менеджеров под давлением гражданских исков.
