The politics of human rights in Egypt and Jordan

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Why did human rights claims have such a limited impact on the authoritarian status quo in the Middle East prior to the Arab Spring -- and why are they so often thwarted now? What factors have shaped human rights debates and outcomes in the region? Addressing these questions, Bosmat Yefet offers a comparative analysis, both empirically grounded and theoretically sophisticated, of the forces variously supporting and resisting the full embrace of human rights in Egypt and Jordan since the 1990s.--Provided by publisher.
