Subject: Re: Human Rights Scholarship in Political Science



What about in other scholarly fields of inquiry? My rather unscientific observation about the study of human rights in the field of History is that few journals publish articles using this framework to study the past. There also are only a few select scholars of "civil liberties." I pose a question for discussion: How does the human rights framework differ from the civil liberties approach?
