Chapter Summary

This chapter offers some general remarks on the topic of universalism and regionalism in the international protection of human rights, dedicated to Ted McWhinney. Since the end of the Second World War and beginning with the United Nations Charter, a great number of legal texts on the international protection of human rights have been elaborated and adopted, on the universal and the regional levels. A great number of universal agreements protect human rights. The United Nations Charter, the two Covenants, the Anti-Torture Convention, the Convention against Racial Discrimination, the Convention against Discrimination of Women, the Convention on the Rights of Children contain the most important texts which are ratified by a great number of states. International conventions for the protection of human rights always contain clauses which permit certain restrictions of some of the rights guaranteed.
