    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 39.33

    In recent decades there have been several constructivist scholars who have looked at how norms change in international relations.

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 26.99

    Transmitting Rights argues that membership in Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs) facilitates the diffusion of human rights standards among their member states--and that this occurs even within IGOs that have no obvious connection to human rights issues.
