It’s Time to Decolonize Human Rights

February 25, 2016 at 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Professor An-Na’im will explore what he refers to as a people-centered alternative to the current state-centric enforcement model for human rights. This is not simply about replacing an ineffective enforcement model with a more effective cultural and political alternative. Instead, professor An-Na’im claims that the current legalistic, state-centric approach has utterly and totally failed in providing any protection of human rights whatsoever. To put it bluntly, there is no possibility of any form or degree of protection of universal human rights except by human beings for themselves, in their own communities.
