Economic globalisation is one of the guiding paradigms of the twenty-first century. The challenge it implies for human rights is fundamental, and key questions have up to now received no satisfying answers. How can human rights protect human dignity when economic globalisation has an adverse impact on local living conditions? How should human rights evolve in response to a global economy in which non-statal actors are decisive forces? Economic Globalisation and Human Rights sets out to assess these and other questions to ensure that, as economic globalization intensifies, human rights take up the central and crucial position that they deserve. Using a multidisciplinary methodology, leading scholars reflect on issues such as the need for global ethics, the localisation of human rights, the role of human rights in WTO law, and efforts to make international economic organisations more accountable and multinational corporations more socially responsible. Multidisciplinary approach enables reader to comprehensively understand the challenges of economic globalisation for human rights Contributors of standing ensure that the reader is aware of the status quo of research in different fields Holistic analysis guarantees that the reader gains an understanding of the current situation and of future developments Contents Introduction Koen De Feyter; Part I.
