Summary:
Given that religious and secular groups are both working on global human rights advocacy, is it important to consider whether and how these group understand the work of human rights advocacy in similar ways, in order to better consider not only how such groups might complement each other, but also how they might collaborate and cooperate in the advancement of human rights. However, little research has attempted to compare religious and secular human rights organizations and their approaches. This book seeks to explore the extent to which religiously-oriented human rights groups differ from their secular kin and to identify the key areas of overlap and divergence. In so doing, it helps lay the groundwork for better understanding how to capitalize on the strengths of religious groups in addressing the world's many human rights challenges"-- Provided by publisher.
