As sociologists deepen their examinations of human rights in their teaching, research and thinking, it is essential that such work is conducted in a manner that is both mindful and critical of the knowledge we are building upon in both sociology and human rights. As the authors of this volume reveal, creating sociological knowledge that examines human rights for the expansion of human rights is something that sociologists are well equipped to undertake, whether through the use of mathematics, comparative-historical analysis, the study of emotions, conversations, or social psychology. In these chapters you will find both the roots of the study of human rights deep within sociological research and thinking and emerging techniques that will push the discipline as it seeks to expand understanding of human rights and so many other aspects of the social condition.
