Abstract

This article explores the historical and normative framework of human rights as an international issue, the tensions and conflicts faced by states in implementing diplomatic policies aimed at the protection and promotion of human rights, the salient debates in the human rights discourse and the instruments and institutional mechanisms available, in both the domestic and the international context, to implement human rights diplomacy. Finally, the limits of human rights diplomacy and its relationship to the use of force to achieve the same objectives is investigated.

Hierdie artikel ondersoek eerstens die historiese en normatiewe raamwerk van menseregte as 'n internasionale kwessie, tweedens die spanninge en teenstrydighede wat state ervaar in die implementering van diplomatieke beleidsrigtings wat die beskerming en bevordering van menseregte ten doel het, derdens die vernaamste debatte wat gevoer word binne die diskoers oor menseregte en vierdens die instrumente en institusionele meganismes wat beskikbaar is om menseregte binnelands sowel as in die internasionale konteks te verwesenlik. Laastens word die beperkinge van menseregtediplomasie, en die verhouding waarin dit staan met geweldgebruik ter bereiking van bepaalde oogmerke, ondersoek.
