Fifty years ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted its Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In recent years however, the resolve of the UN to abide by the Universal Declaration has waned. The commitment to protecting human rights as a means for world stability and peace is at stake as groups of lobbyists seek to redefine traditional human rights. The editors of this book from the Family Research Council (FRC) have gathered a collection of essays from scholars, physicians, politicians, and human rights activists from all over the world. Each paper offers reflections on the UN's past performance, as well as ideas for its future role in human rights protection. The book concludes with reflections by Alan Keyes, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council. He argues that the UN cannot effectively represent principles of decency and right when it is itself composed of nations that do not observe decency and right.
