In fact, since we started using these campaign materials to supplement our education activity, we have seen an approximate 96 percent decrease in the number of complaints and allegations of human rights violations by the national army. A partnership between the UN Peacekeeping Mission and Youth for Human Rights has provided a significant step toward stability in this fragile democracy. I would be honored to suggest the inclusion of them as an official part of the human rights education programs of my country.

Making Human Rights a Reality by Emilie M. Hafner-Burton | SpringerLink
Help make human rights an everyday reality with educational tools that bring them to life. From this initial review, her first conclusion is that the endorsement of a broad range of rights with numerous states involved in the process has not worked very well. For her, "the results of that universal approach have been underwhelming. Seeing human rights violations mostly as a matter of rational calculation rather than emotional outburst, she identifies six factors that correlate with human rights violations: conflict and cultures of violence, illiberalism or authoritarianism rather than democracy , political dissent, poverty and inequality, intolerance and dehumanization, and crimes and abuse systems.
She observes that most situations of human rights violations involve the participation of a large number of persons who rationalize their roles in terms of following orders, protecting a greater good such as national security, and so on. In her summary, "most perpetrators of abuse reason and rationalize; they are not biologically or mentally disabled, and most are not impulsive criminals acting on whims.
The committing of crimes, including mass murder, sometimes involves personality disorders more than is admitted here. Her follow-on initial survey of the international law of human rights, with attention to global and regional institutions for implementation, is standard and sound.
Her conclusion to this in Chapter 4 raises a possibility which she does not believe in, namely that the system will improve over time if supporters continue to carry on. More people in more countries will come to see these obligations as legitimate, and so obey them willingly because they will learn to believe in them and trust that law represents the right values. She thus parts company with the late Louis Henkin and others who saw most international human rights activity as a matter of socializing national governments and at least part of national publics into learning human rights values over time.
Her next two chapters buttress further her analysis with quantitative and qualitative information about the workings of the human rights system.
The latter approach specifies the bad news: national ignorance only about 7 percent of the US public has heard of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ; no quality control about which states participate in international mechanisms; insufficient resources as, for example, regarding the monitoring mechanisms; insider policies an old boy network ; cumbersome procedures; poorly employed complaint Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
