A Critical Evaluation of the Human Rights Paradigm

Romit Bhandari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Chapter 6 shows that the types of dispositions covered in previous chapters have created disciplinary blindspots. They have left the more troublesome theoretical implications of the current paradigm untouched. This chapter provides an appreciation of the overall efficacy of the theoretical model. It conveys that refugee law and human rights law might exhibit a coincidental connection, but they do not have a normative one. This is likely to encourage discretion, restrictiveness and fragmentation in its application.
