Human Rights in Theory and Practice: A Review of 'On Human Rights,' 18 Fordham International Law Journal 1566 (1995)
The end of the Cold War and the resulting search for new
paradigms with which to understand the world presents the international
human rights movement with both an opportunity
and a challenge. The opportunity is created by the demise of
the global bipolar world view that manipulated and distorted
many human rights concerns. The corresponding challenge is
the creation of a new world order in which human rights are
respected by all societies.
