Great narratives and experimental methodologies successfully capture empirical, everyday experiences

In ten chapters, various mega events and other social phenomena are studied from the point of view of human rights. In his review, Lasse Frandsen takes a closer look at two instances, the Calais Jungle refugee camp and the São Paulo Pride 2017.
