Maryland Journal of International Law: Marley S. Weiss' "Human Rights and the Global Economy: The Centrality of Economic and Social Rights"

Read this article. Weiss provides an introduction to and analysis of the ways in which specific human rights (e.g. labor rights, discrimination, etc.) cut across the boundary between civil and political rights on the one hand and economic, social, and cultural rights on the other hand. The author further elucidates Marks' analysis through this consideration of concrete specific rights. In doing so, she explores the relationships between various globalization dynamics and their impact on human rights.
