dc.description.abstract During the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1998, Baxi warned that contemporary human rights is being supplanted by ‘…a trade-related, market-friendly, human rights paradigm’ (Baxi 1998: 125 at 163). According to him, the new paradigm requires states to pursue the ‘three Ds’ of globalisation (deregulation, de-nationalisation and disinvestment), in order to free as much space as possible for global capital (Baxi 1998: 125 at 164). en_US
