Cover for 
The Twilight of Human Rights Law

 

Eric A. Posner. The twilight of human rights law. Oxford University Press, 2014.

K3240.P69 2014

 

This book examines why international human rights treaties have had so little success in curtailing or preventing human rights abuses. Posner argues that disagreement among countries as to the nature of the public good has led to the ratification of vague, deliberately unenforceable treaties, which allow a high degree of flexibility in their interpretation.
