1. Describe what the contemporary human rights regime does in the world today. Is the role it currently plays satisfactory? If so, how and why? If not, what impact does it currently have and what role (if any) should it ideally play in the future?
2. How did the idea of human rights change or evolve in the 20th Century? Do you believe that the way it was developed has favored some countries or groups at the expense of others? Why or why not? If you believe it has done so, do you think this is problematic?
