About this product
- DescriptionOver twenty years after the 1989 UN General Assembly vote to open the Convention on the Rights of the Child for signature and ratification by UN member states, the US remains one of only two UN members not to have ratified it. The other is Somalia. This explores the reasons for this resistance. It details the objections that have arisen to accepting this legally binding international instrument, which presupposes indivisible universal civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights, and gives children special protection due to their vulnerability.
- Author BiographyClark Butler, who holds a PhD from the University of Southern California, is a Purdue University philosophy professor based on the Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne campus (IPFW) and director of the IPFW Center for Applied Ethics. His previous books include Human Rights Ethics: A Rational Approach (Purdue University Press 2008), which proposes a contemporary normative ethical theory in the place of natural law ethics, utilitarianism, and other classical normative ethic theories. His most recent book, The Dialectical Method: A Treatise Hegel Never Wrote (Prometheus Books 2011), reveals a research agenda aimed at continuing the German philosopher's work in the twenty-first century.
