This major work, a sequel to the acclaimed The Future of Human Rights, brings together reflections on human rights theory in the contemporary human condition delineated by the discourses concerning ‘development’, ‘terror’, and the emergent ‘posthuman’. While acknowledging the precarious place of human rights today, the author points to the emancipatory potential of the ‘posthuman’, contending that human rights norms and standards remain constitutive conditions of the emergence of the posthuman.
