Kathryn Sikkink articulates a powerful case for forward-looking individual and collective responsibilities as essential for the enjoyment of rights. --Robert O. Keohane, author of After Hegemony: Cooperation and Discord in the World Political Economy In this brave and important book, a leading scholar of human rights reopens the debate about responsibilities in relation to rights and outlines the collective normative work needed to deal with the most challenging issues of our time. --Joseph S. Nye, Jr., author of Do Morals Matter? Presidents and Foreign Policy from FDR to Trump One of the world's greatest authorities on international human rights, Kathryn Sikkink boldly reframes a politicized debate.
