The Endtimes of Human Rights (April 1)
A Lecture with author Stephen Hopgood, Reader in International Relations and co-Director of the Centre for the International Politics of Conflict, Rights and Justice (CCRJ), SOAS, University of London
A 150-year experiment in the globalization of liberal norms is coming to an end in an era of increasing multipolarity, conservative religiosity, superficial popular mobilization, American ambivalence and European decline. The hopes and aspirations that humanists have vested in human rights - whose zenith appears to have arrived with the International Criminal Court and the Responsibility to Protect - are destined to be dashed as the reality dawns that only Western power made universal norms look even vaguely possible.
