Chapter Summary

The Judge Jakob Möller service on the Sub-Commission and in the many other capacities in which he is nowadays called upon to serve and to render advice and assistance, he often focuses on: evolving global currents; new threats and challenges; emerging problems affecting human rights; new substantive human rights issues; ongoing problems of implementation and of protection; and the development of the international human rights jurisprudence that must underpin the human rights work of the 21st century. This chapter considers some of these issues. It presents a brief recapitulation of the 20th centurys bequest to the 21st century. The feature that is special about the regime of human rights treaties is that the adhering or ratifying governments have freely accepted them. They are, therefore, the most solid consensual bases on which to build national, regional and international human rights work in the 21st century.

Keywords: 21st century; human rights treaties; international human rights jurisprudence; Judge Jakob Möller
