What is missing is an updated global governance system to harness the great promise afforded by globalisation and technological change.

    The purpose of this paper is to propose some themes to be debated about the future effects, problems, and perspectives of the recent experiences centered around issues of international law (the International Tribunals for Rwanda and former Yugoslavia and the "Pinochet" and "Milosevic" cases, among others). It deals with themes of concern for international organizations, associations, non governmental organizations, institutions and local groups that fight for the dissemination, defense, and entrenchment of those rights. Particular emphasis is placed on the sphere of civil and political rights within the framework of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). In this paper questions dealing with economic, social and cultural rights have not been taken into account, although we refer to them on various occasions.
