Human Rights and Societies in Transition: Causes, Consequences, Responses edited by Shale Horowitz, Albrecht Schnabel (United Nations University Press) Human rights violations are often particularly severe in transition societies that are undergoing significant political, social, and economic transformations. Improving human rights practices in transition societies should therefore be a central goal for domestic reformers and the international community alike. This makes sense not only because of the intrinsic value of improved human rights protection, but also because of the indirect effects that such improvements have on democratization, economic development, and conflict resolution. The book is a joint effort by 17 scholars from various parts of the world, specializing in political science, sociology, law, and regional studies. It explores the contemporary international human rights regime, the factors predominantly responsible for human rights violations in transition societies, longterm consequences of such violations, and political remedies.
