“Cabin’d, Cribb’d, Confin’d: Canada’s Interests in Human Rights.” In Human Rights in Canadian Foreign Policy, edited by Robert O. Matthews and Cranford Pratt,   Any justifiable priority for one class of rights must rest on strategic or political, not conceptual or moral, grounds.

Human Rights and Foreign Policy considers the issues, controversies, and efforts to safeguard human's civil and political rights. This book is composed of five chapters and begins with an introduction to the role of foreign policies, which is remedying the injustices suffered by many in other countries living under tyrannical and inhumane governments.
