On June 19, 2013, Professor Jack Snyder, the Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science and Member, SIWPS, had a piece published with openDemocracy, a digital commons that champions human rights and seeks to debate forms of democratic change. The article, “Human rights in the vernacular,” discusses how “the road to greater ownership of human rights by emerging powers” may be a bumpy one, but it is also one that will develop a real approach to human rights instead of a utopian one.

The article can be read it its entirety here.
