International Community Becoming ‘Complacent’ On Human Rights, U.N. Special Rapporteur Says

The Guardian: Humanity is on path to self-destruction, warns U.N. special rapporteur
“…Human rights are facing a ‘worrying backlash’ from a global community that has failed to ‘learn the lesson’ of the past. Speaking exclusively to the Guardian, the United Nations’ special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, said the global community had become ‘complacent’ in the face of injustice because the world no longer understood why human rights should be protected or what the world would look like without them…” (Hodal, 12/10).
