Chapter Summary

With the foundation of the UN, the concept came to the fore that maintaining international peace and security (Peacekeeping) and the protection of human rights (Human Rights, Protection of) are connected with each other, that massive infringements of human rights threaten peace, and that states can influence the adherence to human rights through international human rights conventions. The conventions provide for procedures for the promotion and protection of human rights, for the prevention of infringements of human rights and for the monitoring of human rights situations in the states, through the reporting procedure and the complaints procedure. The examination of the state reports is not prescribed in detail within the different human rights conventions; however, the examinations take place as public hearings. Considering the complex system of human rights conventions, one will find the number of regulations for their implementation fairly low compared with the number of norms.
