The Human Right to Dominate

Nicola Perugini and Neve Gordon

Oxford Studies in Culture and Politics

  • A controversial thesis that shows how human rights -- generally conceived as a counter-hegemonic instrument for righting historical injustices -- are being deployed to subjugate the weak and reinforce their domination.
  • The book analyzes the inversions that can take place when emancipatory discourses are appropriated by the dominant group in contexts of political asymmetry.
