Abstract

It is within the context of globalization that developing countries' receptivity

as well as resistance to global human rights standards must be understood. This

Article suggests that an effective promotion of human rights in this context

requires a deeper understanding of its effects on the most vulnerable people, and

that to the extent that globalizing human rights standards overlook the complexity

of local conditions and constraints, the promotion of the universal view of human

rights will do little to ensure their realization in the developing world.
