The Human Rights Approach to Political Responsibility

The Human Rights Approach to Political Responsibility

(p.189) 6 The Human Rights Approach to Political Responsibility
Just Responsibility

Brooke A. Ackerly

Oxford University Press

Drawing on the empirical insights from chapter 5, chapter 6 develops the human rights theory of responsibility and outlines its key features. Although the theory has general applicability across contexts of global injustice, the chapter uses the work of the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity (BCWS) to illustrate each of five key principles-in-practice: utilizing intersectional analysis, making cross-issue connections, building capacity for both self-advocacy and group advocacy, building community through connected activism, and learning and making an ongoing commitment to political responsibility. It lays out the landscape of human rights political theory of responsibility for global justice and the role of these five principles and just responsibility in human rights politics.
