This book collects five state-of-the-art analyses prepared by doctoral students enrolled in the international joint doctoral programme in ‘Human Rights, Society, and Multi-level Governance’. These contributions help updating and systematising a set of ongoing scholarly debates on human rights-related matters, identifying existing weaknesses or under-researched aspects as well as new pathways for research. Overall, the book contributes to consolidate a multi-disciplinary approach to human rights research and dissemination. The subjects addressed show how relevant a human rights perspective may be in addressing some crucial contemporary issues and ‘wicked problems’ – from irregular migrations to environmental mismanagement, from post-conflict constitutional rebuilding to women’s agency in promoting development and peace.
