Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter synthesizes in a strong idea the core notions of this book and condenses in a final claim the position that it takes. The book analyzes the challenges which are currently present in the field of human rights, such as: globalization, multiculturalism, universal criminal jurisdiction, the role of sovereignty, international terrorism, wars, and advances in biotechnology and the Internet. International terrorism today forms a serious threat for the security of our world. But that does not justify defense at the cost of damaging fundamental freedoms, conquered by the rule of law. In this environment it is completely necessary for human rights to rise up as arbitrators in the world sphere in order to prevent any type of abuses. Peace, the defense of the environment, and so many other prospects are only feasible in today’s world if governments, international organizations and civil society collaborate on a global scale.

Keywords: globalization; human rights; international terrorism; multiculturalism; sovereignty; universal criminal jurisdiction
