Abstract

This chapter will expand upon the quintessential debate of International Relations introduced in the opening box and consider:

• The meaning and rise of the concept of human rights in international affairs.
• The roles played by the United Nations and civil society in advancing human rights by promoting the implementation of existing legal instruments and developing further ones.
• Why there is resistance to this development of human rights (from quarters other than human rights abusers themselves!)
