Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the relationship of human rights and law by examining both general developments as well as detailed instances of SCANET activities. The discussion commences with an overview of how this relationship was embodied in the drafting of the UDHR. It moves to describe general processes through which human rights are legalized particularly in the UN context. The chapter then explores how legal emphasis is visible in the community of practice of human rights experts, and compares the observed SCANET expert profile to that identifiable in central UN human rights treaty bodies. The latter part of the chapter explores some practical consequences that legal emphasis has in SCANET educational activities. This chapter has demonstrated that SCANET expert profiles are strongly characterized by legal experience and training.
