Human Rights at 60. Whose rights? Whose responsibility?

25 Jun

FROM IRENE KHAN

What are human rights in 2008?

Do you believe the world would be safer if terror suspects weren’t held in Guantanamo but were freed or tried in normal courts? With civilians increasingly the victims of vicious armed conflicts, should armed groups be accused of and tried for human rights abuses?

Should governments who are denying their people healthcare, education or access to food be brought to justice?

The discussion includes my comments on the matter.
