HUMAN RIGHTS AND EMPOWERMENT

The idea to come up with a book focusing economic, social and cultural rights and the necessity to resort to anti-generic lawyering for empowerment of the poor clients originated as a consequence of Dr. Mizanur Rahman’s interactions as a Fulbright Visting Professor with the faculty and the students of the Community Development Clinic (CDC) of the University of Baltimore School of Law.
