Chapter Summary

The chapter examines some of the key aspects of the human rights diplomacy of small states. How do small states use the tools of human rights diplomacy? What is the track record of small states in this regard? What are the particular advantages and disadvantages of small states in working on human rights issues? These and other related questions are examined from a practitioner's perspective with a view to ascertaining whether there are clear examples of best practice which, in particular, might provide a template for others working in the area? The chapter which takes an admittedly Eurocentric approach is intended more to point out some key issues rather than to address them comprehensively and draws significantly on the author's experience of managing Ireland's human rights foreign policy.
