This book analyses debates concerning the nature, justification and legal protection of human rights with reference to the issues surrounding social milieu as a source of any legitimized law. With contributions from a global network of scientists across several continents, the work examines the understanding of the normative framework, expressed in terms of human rights that guarantee autonomous action in public and private and goes beyond the legal analysis to discuss communication strategies in human rights.
