Chapter Summary

This chapter maps out some of the important changes which have occurred globally over the last two decades and analyses how and where these processes impact on human rights reinforcement. It identifies shortcomings and negative human rights change. The chapter captures some of the structural and institutional changes which are taking place globally and reflects on how these changes may contribute to human rights reinforcement and setbacks. It focuses on an alternative and broader track of human rights implementation: consolidation through nonlegal means, i.e. the institutionalisation of human rights through political and administrative decision-making, for instance, with respect to resource allocation or through the broader processes of dialogue and value change in society and between social actors in different societies. The concept and model used in the chapter discusses the human rights implications of globalisation is global governance.

Keywords: global governance; globalisation; human rights reinforcement
