Two Perspectives on Human Rights

Two columns on a Stanford University blog address how human rigths are interpreted differently around the world: One entry is by Chinese studies professor Ban Wang. His research interests include aesthetics, Chinese literature, and international politics. He recently edited a volume Words and Their Stories: Essays on Revolutionary Discourse in China. The other entry was written by Helen Stacy, a Senior Lecturer at the Stanford Law School and a Senior Fellow at FSI's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. Her latest work, Human Rights for the 21st Century: Sovereignty, Civil Society, Culture, was published earlier this year.
