By Shelly Wright

masking a various variety of subject matters, case experiences and theories, the writer undertakes a critique of the central assumptions on which the prevailing overseas human rights regime has been built. She argues that the decolonization of human rights, and the production of a world group that's conducive to the healthiness of all people, would require an intensive restructuring of our methods of pondering, gaining knowledge of and writing. In contributing to this restructuring she brings jointly feminist and indigenous techniques in addition to postmodern and post-colonial scholarship, attractive at once with the various winning orthodoxies, comparable to 'universality', 'the individual', 'self-determination', 'cultural relativism', 'globalization' and 'civil society'.
