Book News Annotation:

Studying two of the most prominent transnational economic and labor rights campaigns of the 1990s, one to end child labor in Bangladesh and the other to fight gender discrimination in Mexican workplaces, Hertel (political science, U. of Connecticut) investigates the reasons why those in Mexico and Bangladesh who were ostensibly being helped by transnational activists came to challenge the definitions of rights and the policy priorities of the campaigns. She proposes two mechanisms by which these challenges happen--"blocking," in which home country activists seek to stall or halt progress in order to pressure outside activists to change the frame of the campaign, and more indirect "backdoor moves," in which the normative reference points may be agreed upon but attempts are made to change secondary reference points or policy priority points. In addition to identifying and explaining these mechanisms, she attempts to demonstrate the role they play in the overall context of the evolution of human rights campaigns.
