Abstract

This discussion of the diplomatic dimension-the foreign politics of human rights-addresses (1) the nature of this new transnational issue, (2) possible approaches and their effects, and (3) problems that complicate promotion of human rights. The author argues that violations of human rights reflect an increasing global crisis and that response to that crisis bears directly on other U.S. objectives. The author concludes that sustained U.S. advocacy of internationally recognized human rights will depend on the degree to which Americans accept the argument that promotion of these rights both serves their national interest and contributes to the overdue redefinition of that interest.
