Advocating Social Change Through International Law, Daniel Bradlow and David Hunter (eds) (Brill Publishers, 2019)
This book explores the use of hard and soft international law in advocating for social change. Using case studies rooted in inter alia human rights, international crimes, environmental protection, public health, and financial regulation, the book focuses on both state and non-state actors’ strategic choices regarding the use of hard and soft international law in advocating for social change. Looking through the social change lens provides new insights into the interplay between soft and hard international law, the perceived costs and benefits associated with hard and soft international law in different contexts, and the factors affecting the effectiveness of hard and soft approaches to international law.
This book was co-edited by Daniel Bradlow of the University of Pretoria Centre for Human Rights (an LDRN partner institution), and was launched at the 4th Annual LDRN Conference at the Humboldt University Law Faculty, Berlin.
