Blurb/Shorttext:
In acknowledging the positing of human rights as universal while simultaneously recognising the endless diversity of humanity, questions emerge concerning whose notion of human rights form the foundations of the conception of international human rights and whether this is an acceptable fit with those falling outside of that conception: ‘the others.’ Subsequently, this book examines whether intersectionality, as a theory concerned with the marginalisation of certain identities, can address these issues within international human rights law or whether it replicates the very issue it sets out to solve in its preoccupation with identity categorisation. In doing so, this work first investigates the conception of the Universal Human Rights Subject and the theory of intersectionality before pointing the way towards a reconceptualisation of intersectionality that progresses beyond the confines of the theory in its contemporary form. This book is for anyone who recognises the importance of human rights and for any one who has ever been concerned with the marginalisation of minorities.
