This chapter highlights the importance of knowledge production for the exercise of power in global politics. It begins by discussing cultural imperialism as a significant apparatus important for the US foreign policy. In this context the importance of the discourse on human rights is stressed. The last part of the chapter looks at how the discourses on neoliberalism and human rights have evolved hand in hand since the 1970s.
