Title
Analysing users trajectories in human rights : a conceptual exploration and research agenda
Author
Abstract
This article develops a research approach which can be summarised as analysing users trajectories in human rights. e key element of this approach, adopting a users perspective on human rights, implies a shi in analytical focus. Instead of analysing a speci c legal instrument, topic or enforcement mechanism, one puts oneself in the shoes of those who engage with (use) human rights. e article explores the implications of adopting such a users perspective on human rights and introduces and re ects upon a categorisation of human rights uses and users. It proposes a broad understanding of human rights users, including rights claimants (who invoke human rights), rights realisers (who give e ect to human rights), supportive users (who support the realisation of human rights) and judicial users (who impose the implementation of human rights), and argues that a possible way of adopting a users perspective is through analysing the trajectories of users in relation to human rights.
