Commissioning and Contesting Post-Apartheid's Human Rights

HIV/AIDS - Racism - Truth and Reconciliation

By Ulrike Kistner

The essays compiled in this book take issue with some of the directions of human rights politics in the immediate post-apartheid period. They look at the relationship between different sets of rights within the political contestations in South Africa. To the terms of social struggles for rights and justice, this book brings perspectives from narrative, psychoanalysis, political philosophy, and medical history; and from the history of national liberation struggles, nationalism and citizenship.
