Human rights enforcement: a fundamental duty of the sovereign state

Human rights enforcement is an important issue within international law. Unfortunately, the status quo of human rights within international law is unsatisfactory. Men, women and children suffer daily violations of their most fundamental human rights. The international community and sovereign states stand by idly, and human rights violations continue unabated. The main impediment to human rights enforcement is state sovereignty. If sovereignty can be abridged to the extent necessary for human rights enforcement, there may be hope for human rights within the international arena
