Review of Human Rights and the Dark Side of Globalisation

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


Along with the benefits of increased connectivity and technological innovation associated with globalisation, popular representations of the ‘dark side’ of globalisation abound. These include the ‘McDonaldisation’ and ‘Disneyfication’ of local economies and cultures, and the racialised anxieties attributed to globalisation by many Trump supporters and pro‐Brexit voters. This scholarly collection, written from the perspective of human rights law, concentrates on a less visible ‘dark side’ of globalisation: namely, the rise of transnational law enforcement in ways designed to evade human rights controls and state responsibility. The concept for the collection began with a workshop at the Danish Institute of Human Rights. The content therefore has a distinctively European focus, with contributions also from Australia and the USA. Case material is drawn from the contexts of border control, surveillance and military action, all of which are increasingly of interest to criminologists who adopt a global outlook.
