Generating Solidarity around Human Rights, Equality and Social Justice

Karen Bell, Sarah Cemlyn

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


Although human rights, equality and social justice are closely
aligned, the relationship between them is rarely analysed or
articulated. This paper considers this relationship and argues
that strengthening their connections and generating solidarity
could synergistically improve the outcomes for each. Such
convergence would require some refocussing, including a
stronger emphasis on socio-economic rights within human
rights discourse. Our analysis indicates that such an emphasis
could be electorally popular.
