Impact Of Globalization On Human Rights: An Overview

Gopika S Gopan, LLM (Intellectual Property and Trade Law), School of Law, Christ (Deemed to be University), Bangalore


Human rights law has evolved in response to globalisation, and nothing in the international system interdict additional safeguards.Globalization has also been addressed by a number of United Nations specialized agencies. This worldwide development is sometimes blamed for exploitation and other types of human rights violations. Human rights advancements, on the other hand, are sometimes linked to the spread of liberal ideals and movements, which is one of globalization's key features. Globalization, according to critics, has harmed human rights, such as the right to equality and other socioeconomic rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights reflects the United Nations' commitment to the indivisibility of human rights. Governments' first priority is to protect human rights. Though globalization comes along with many benefits, the fact that the gains and costs are spread unfairly is a feature of the process that hinders the full enjoyment of all human rights, particularly in developing nations. During this period of globalization, inequality has increased. The purpose of this study is to emphasize the impact of globalization on the human rights regime.
