Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses human rights diplomacy. It argues that states and other actors often find themselves in situations where human rights are seen as expendable rather than absolutely required. And it is precisely this condition that gives rise to so much modern diplomacy for human rights. The article then identifies two ways of viewing modern diplomacy for human rights, corresponding to political views of desired world order: the separatist (pluralist) view and the solidarist view.

Keywords: human rights, diplomacy, states, separatist, solidarist
