The Role of International law in Addressing Global Human Rights Abuses: A Quantitative Study
One of the primary priorities of the international community is the defence and advancement of human rights (HR). International law was created to give governments a framework for upholding, defending, and respecting their HR commitments as well as to hold violators of such rights responsible. The significance of international law in addressing widespread HR violations is examined in this essay, as well as the systems in place to monitor and uphold HR norms, including conventions, courts, and other legal instruments. The study examines the development of HR-related international law, its influence on state action, as well as the shortcomings of the existing system. The essay also examines how well international law works in addressing new and ongoing instances of mass atrocities, war, and prejudice against people based on their gender, colour, ethnicity, religion, and other characteristics. In the end, the paper makes the case that although international law has made tremendous progress in advancing HR, more work has to be done to address the underlying reasons behind violations and to guarantee that those responsible are held accountable.
