Institutions matter for the advancement of human rights in global health. Given the dramatic development of human rights under international law and the parallel proliferation of global institutions for public health, there arises an imperative to understand the implementation of human rights through global health governance. This volume examines the evolving relationship between human rights, global governance, and public health, studying an expansive set of health challenges through a multi-sectoral array of global organizations. To analyze the structural determinants of rights-based governance, the organizations in this volume include those international bureaucracies that implement human rights in ways that influence public health in a globalizing world. This volume brings together leading health and human rights scholars and practitioners from academia, non-governmental organizations, and the United Nations system. They explore the foundations of human rights as a normative framework for global health governance, the mandate of the World Health Organization to pursue a human rights-based approach to health, the role of inter-governmental organizations across a range of health-related human rights, the influence of rights-based economic governance on public health, and the focus on global health among institutions of human rights governance. Contributing chapters each map the distinct human rights efforts within a specific institution of global governance for health. Through the comparative institutional analysis in this volume, the contributing authors examine institutional dynamics to operationalize human rights in organizational policies, programs, and practices and assess institutional factors that facilitate or inhibit human rights mainstreaming for global health advancement.

Das Interesse der Historiker am Thema Menschenrechte beschränkte sich lange Zeit auf ideengeschichtliche Aspekte. Seit kurzem mehren sich jedoch empirische Studien, die zeigen, dass die Fragen nach einem historisch tragfähigen Begriff der Menschenrechte, nach ihrer Genese und Periodisierung neu gestellt werden müssen. Der vorliegende Band nimmt die Entwicklung der Menschenrechte seit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges vor dem Hintergrund des Kalten Krieges, der Dekolonisierung und der Zäsur von 1989/90 in den Blick. Dabei zeigt sich nicht nur, wie vielfältig die Akteure waren, die Inhalt und Begriff der Menschenrechte entwickelten und zu ihrem Aufstieg beitrugen, sondern auch, wie formbar dieses Instrument war und ist. Mit Beiträgen und Kommentaren von David Abraham, Rafael Biermann, Marco Duranti, Jan Eckel, Norbert Frei, Marc Frey, Philipp Gassert, Constantin Goschler, Atina Grossmann, Kathrin Kollmeier, Daniel Levy, Ulrike Lindner, Regula Ludi, Daniel Maul, Anja Mihr, Mary Nolan, Dominik Rigoll, Miriam Rürup, Klaus Scharioth, Shimon Stein, Stefan Troebst, Ernst Wawra, Annette Weinke, Eric Weitz und Lora Wildenthal.

Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems (now available in journal format), is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. Law and Global Health, the sixteenth volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the scholarship examining the relationship between global health and the law. Covering a wide range of areas from all over the world, articles in the volume look at areas of human rights, vulnerable populations, ethical issues, legal responses and governance.

Global Health Governance in International Society

In the 1980s, health was a marginal issue on the international political agenda, and it barely figured into donor states' foreign aid allocation. Within a generation, health had developed a robust set of governance structures that drive significant global political action, incorporate a wide range of actors, and receive increasing levels of funding. What explains this dramatic change over such a short period of time? Drawing on the English School of international relations theory, this book argues that global health has emerged as a secondary institution within international society. Rather than being a side issue, global health now occupies an important role. Addressing global health issues-financially, organizationally, and politically-is part of how actors demonstrate their willingness and ability to help realize their moral responsibility and obligation to others. In this way, it demonstrates how global health governance has emerged, grown, and persisted-even in the face of global economic challenges and inadequate responses to particular health crises. The book also shows how English School conceptions of international society would benefit from expanding their analytical gaze to address international economic issues and incorporate non-state actors. The book begins by building a case for using the English School to understand the role of global health governance before looking at global health governance's place in international society through case studies about the growth of development assistance for health, the international response to the Ebola outbreak, and China's role within the global health governance framework. .
