We are at the second crucial stage in the development of human rights thinking. The first was gaining widespread international recognition for the very idea of human rights - that has been more or less successful. The third will be achieving enforcement of human rights provisions, by bringing every dictator and oppressor to trial and punishing every violation of human rights.
