Human rights discourse has become an effective political tool for dominant regions to impose self-serving agendas on weaker areas. This dynamic is especially noticeable within the relationship of the North and the South. Employing humanitarian jargon, the former has successfully pushed its political agenda unto the South, positioning the North as the global moral high ground. The success of such ventures is aided by a variety of international organizations, which institutionalize humanitarianism in their policies. Thus, there does not exist a lucid distinction between political motivation and humanitarian rhetoric.
