In In the current era of political globalization, States maintain their traditional role of protagonist in the international (human rights) system.

This study focuses on the extent to which political globalization is transforming (or not) the conditions under which international human rights law operates and how far political globalization is associated with ‘new limits’ to, or alternatively ‘new forms’ of international human rights law (if any).

Abstract

In In the current era of political globalization, States maintain their traditional role of protagonist in the international (human rights) system. At the same time, however, they are expected to devise instruments that will maximise their ability to adapt to the needs of an effective protection of human rights due to the ‘present-day conditions.’ Indeed, if one pauses to reflect on the increasing diversity of international actors and consider ‘international law in her infinite variety,’ the question is whether the international human rights regime of today is in fact different today from that of previous eras. This study focuses on the extent to which political globalization is transforming (or not) the conditions under which international human rights law operates and how far political globalization is associated with ‘new limits’ to, or alternatively ‘new forms’ of international human rights law (if any).
