Speaking Rights to Power

Oxford University Press

This chapter chronicles the historical emergence of repertoires of human rights rhetoric. The foundation of universal solidarity with victims of injustice is laid by the Dreyfus Affair, while norms and networks of internationalism are established by the Spanish Civil War. The importance of symbolism is shown by trends in commemoration of the Holocaust. The use of information politics in Arab Spring demonstrates the globalization of these repertoires.

Keywords:   Solidarity, symbolism, Dreyfus Affair, Holocaust, Spanish Civil War, Arab Spring
