Abstract: We live in the Age of Rights. But we also live in the Age of Globalisation. So what happens when these two ideas collide or interact with each other on global scale? Since both these concepts emerged and interacted along the similar timelines post Cold War, the interaction of these ideas has lead to several multi-dimensional issues. A study of these issues highlights the uneasy relationship between globalisation and human rights as differential in different circumstances. On several occasion globalisation has had a positive impact on development of human rights and on several others it has lead to even more human rights violations restricting their development. In this backdrop, this paper attempts to study the relationship between them to critically analyse the various facets of globalisation vis-à-vis human right.

Keywords: globalisation; human rights; globalised world.
