Event description
Join IHRC for a book launch of The New Colonialism: The American Model of Human Rights.

About this Event

IHRC held the conference The New Colonialism: The American Model of Human Rights in February 2018 to unmask the systemic problems that undergird US Exceptionalism, with a focus on the Americanisation of Human Rights as tool of US led foreign policy rather than a transformative discourse that seeks to liberate individuals, groups and indeed large sections of society who are oppressed by unjust systems.

This book presents nine contributions from scholar-activists looking at how human rights as theory and practice have been co-opted by the US as part of brutal, racist and colonial foreign and domestic policies.

WHEN: Monday, 20 January 2020, 6.30pm

WHERE: IHRC Bookshop, 202 Preston Road, Wembley, London HA9 8PA
