The Belgrade Circle was established as an intellectual forum to promote the establishment of a free, open, democratic and rational civil society around the world. This volume sets out to describe the political and philosophical underpinnings to the idea of human rights by bringing together a collection of original essays from a group of highly distinguished theorists. Whilst accepting the advantages of a legalist model in globalizing the issue of human rights, it also recognizes that Western insistence on universality of the concept can function as a diplomatic cover for post-colonial intervention. It insists that the campaign for human rights must take into account the varied social and economic environments in different nation states that affect the ways in which they can be implemented. Above all it insists that the best way of promoting a universal concept of human rights is by demonstrating international solidarity with those many individuals and groups whose basic rights are jeopardized or denied. Contributors: John Rawls, Emmanuel Levinas, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Richard Rorty, Peter Dews, Charles Taylor, Jon Elster, Antonio Cassese, Robert Dahl, Aleksandar Molnar, Marijana Santrac, Charlotte Bunch, Obrad Savic, Anthony Giddens, Terry Eagleton, Rajesh Sampath, Jean Baudrillard, Noam Chomsky, Paul Jalbert, and Christopher Norris.
