To what extent are underlying social, economic, and political causes of human rights violations in the Middle East unique to the region and conversely, to what extent are the apparent or real features of such uniqueness a function of contemporary manifestations of Orientalism and Islamophobia? What does the international human rights framework offer Middle Eastern countries? In what ways does it foster local efforts to improve human rights in the Middle East and in what ways does its baggage of imperialism, neo-imperialisms, power relations, and appropriations of human rights discourses by governments pursuing their own geo-political interests, damage such local and authentic efforts? In addressing these questions, the authors provide a systematic analysis of looking beyond the abuses of human rights in the Middle East with a view toward (1) problematizing traditional doctrinal thinking and concepts in the region; (2) ascertaining comparative and historical roots of human rights abuses in the Middle East, and (3) developing strategies for improving human rights conditions of the vast majority of people more generally and those of minorities and marginal communities more particularly.
