Human Rights in the 21st Century
This is a collection of papers that were initially presented at the international conference, which was organized from 9th to 10th November 2018 by the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SASA) and Faculty of Law, University of Belgrade. The conference was organized on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Besides the introductory address, by Ben Ferencz, one of the prosecutors at the Nuremberg Trials, this volume gathers internationally renowned scholars and practitioners who deal with diverging issues from the international human rights law and politics. The volume opens with a selection of contributions broadly falling under the heading - general theoretical issues. It is followed by a handful of articles focusing on the minority rights protection in the 21st century. Third part of the book is devoted to a pertinent problem of accountability of corporations for human rights violations. The closing part of the book is dedicated to environment and bioethics as human rights issues. This volume would be of interest to both human rights scholars and practitioners as well as to those generally interested in public international law issues.
