Human Rights and Free Trade in Mexico: A Discursive and Sociopolitical Perspective

Human Rights and Free Trade in Mexico: A Discursive and Sociopolitical Perspective
Palgrave Macmillan | May 27, 2008 | English | ISBN: 0230606555 | 288 pgs | PDF | 1.62 Mb

This book demonstrates how human rights instruments and values have brought different movements together in the struggle against free trade under the banners of state duty and law enforcement with their underlying principles of equality and human dignity. Special emphasis is placed on how subjectivities influence identification with certain values and legal or political strategies. Furthermore, by focusing on the understanding of human rights by social agents the book also shows that specific human rights have more political potential for certain types of subjects in the struggle against free trade than others, such as the right to development, the rights of women and the right to food. This analysis is conducted with a specifically Latin American theorization of human rights that challenges both Eurocentric scholarly works on the issue and the arguments of European activists directed at the allegedly Western authorship of human rights discourses.
