Summary "As human rights discourse increasingly focuses on analysing states and the institutions that promote and support the human rights machinery that states have created, this volume serves to recall that despite the growing size of the machinery and unwieldy nature of states, human rights began with real people. It samples a broad range of actors and localities where everyday people fought to ensure that the basic principles of human rights became a reality for all. This volume will give a face to the everyday people to whom credit is due for shaping human rights. It is designed to provide a point of reference for students of human rights, particularly those interested in pursuing a career in the field. It responds to the constant question about how to begin a career in human rights by highlighting that there is no single path into this dynamic field that was built on the back of small initiatives by people across a broad spectrum of career paths"--
