The impact of political globalization on human rights law

  • Claudia Cinelli University of Seville
Keywords: globalisation, human rights, law, protection


In the current era of political globalization, States maintain their traditional role of protagonist in the international (human rights) system. At the same time, however, they are expected to devise instruments that will maximise their ability to adapt to the needs of an effective protection of human rights due to the ‘present-day conditions.’ Indeed, if one pauses to refl ect on the increasing diversity of international actors and consider ‘international law in her infi nite variety,’ the question is whether the international human rights regime of today is in fact different today from that of previous eras. In pondering the interplay between international (global) politics and international human rights law, the article suggests – in terms of challenges – a reconsideration of State (positive) obligations pursuant to the nature circulaire of international human rights protection.
