New Book Launched!


After eight years of development, I am thrilled to present the newest addition to CGA's book series. Human Rights: Towards a Global Values System provides an overview of critical human rights debates and issues today and in the past. While the idea of human rights is not a universally agreed upon concept, my aim in this book is to explain, encourage and support an expanded notion of human rights as a universal values system for all global citizens to embrace. This expanded notion of human rights is not just a modern or Western concept; it has broad and deep historical roots that span diverse cultures, societies, and nations throughout the world. Read featured excerpts on our blog.
