Skogly, Sigrun (2009) Global Responsibility for Human Rights. Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, 29 (4). pp. 827-847. ISSN 1464-3820Full text not available from this repository.
Globalisation has made the protection of human rights and prevention of violations of these rights more complex in recent years. This article reviews a book that challenges the current ‘wisdom’ of human rights obligations that almost uniquely focus on the behaviour of states in relation to their own populations. The focus of this review is the concept of ‘shared responsibility’ for human rights protection that is an essential topic of the book. It assesses the call for responsibility for those states with the power to influence structures in the international community that perpetrate poverty and human rights violations on a large scale.
