The latest Chatham House/Brookings Institution Press book Reclaiming Human Rights in a Changing World Order is published this month – a timely reminder of the continuing relevance of human rights for millions of people worldwide and the need for renewed action.

Cover of the book 'Human Rights in a Changing World Order'

The legitimacy of many of the accepted tenets of international human rights have over the years been undermined by the impact of shifting geopolitics, polarized domestic policies, the rise of populist nationalism, and new technologies.

In this book, Christopher Sabatini, Senior Research Fellow for Latin America at Chatham House, has assembled a diverse group of leading scholars who, together with human rights activists and young leaders from across the world, offer practical advice to policymakers, academics and all champions of human rights on ways to protect, reform and shore up global, regional and domestic human rights protections.

Christopher Sabatini said:

‘The book is intended to inform broader understanding of contemporary threats to human rights, future scholarship, and policymaking and activism.’

The Chatham House/Brookings Institution Press series Insights is delighted to add this book to its list designed to anticipate trends in all aspects of international affairs, illuminating new ideas and thinking.

Print editions of the book are available from Brookings.
