Human Rights Conversations
The new book The Domestic Institutionalisation of Human Rights edited by Stéphanie Lagoutte, Sébastien Lorion, and Steven L. B. Jensen (Routledge, September 2021) explores recent developments pointing towards a domestic institutionalisation of human rights, composed of converging international trends prescribing the setting up of domestic human rights institutions, and outlining ideal models for 'national human rights systems'. For the first time, the book captures and critically examines these developments, which represent a response to bridging the implementation gap between human rights commitments and reality.
Aside from outlining the main elements and key points of debate, this book introduces a research agenda aimed at structuring and generating further attention - from both academics and practitioners - on the growing pluralist arena of national human rights actors. The chapters assess various models and cases put forward for national human rights systems.
This book launch is part of our Human Rights Conversation series. It will discuss – in the presence of the editors and of some contributors – the book’s novel approach and content and the question of the domestic institutionalization of human rights.
