Never before has the appeal to human rights been as pervasive as it is today. At the international level there is, indeed, a great deal of discussion about the moral standards countries must comply with in order to be considered a part of the international community. As recent events show, it is also true that the instrumental use of human rights has often been oriented to justify new forms of ideological imperialism that have little to do with the defense of a true interest in human rights protection.
