NAM Year Book on Human Rights and Cultural diversity: Cultures in Support of Humanity edited by Kamran Hashemi & Linda Briskman released.
The relation between cultural diversity and human rights has been an issue of long-standing debate among human rights scholars, policymakers and advocates. The Non-Aligned Movement Center for Human Rights and Cultural Diversity (NAMCHRCD) which is an outcome of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Ministerial Meeting on Human Rights and Cultural Diversity, held on September 3-4, 2007, in Tehran, during the year 2011 held three successful international academic events in cooperation with some prestigious academic institutions and with the participation of more than 600 attendees (more than 100 speakers and more than 500 participants) from more than 30 countries. The volume contains 28 selected papers submitted to the three above mentioned academic events and is divided into the themes of: Cultural Diversity and Constructions of Human Rights; Islamic Culture and Human Rights; Responses to Conflict Situations; Traditional Knowledge and Human Rights; Contemporary issues; and Country Case Studies. However, one of the strengths of the collection is the interlocking of themes that is apparent in many of the papers.
