Ebook Description

In Understanding Social Action, Promoting Human Rights, editors Ryan Goodman, Derek Jinks, and Andrew K. Woods bring together a stellar group of contributors from across the social sciences to apply a broad yet conceptually unified array of advanced social science research concepts to the study of human rights and human rights law. The book focuses on three key methodological and substantive areas: actors and their biases; groups and group dynamics, via political economy and social network analysis; and communication, covering health communications, media studies, and social norms research. Their goal is to provide a richer and more integrated approach to the study and practice of human rights, which necessarily requires a more comprehensive and practical theory of social action.
