Human rights NGOs under scrutiny



From "Electronic Intifada" to Human Rights Watch can be just one hop [Jonathan Foreman, UK Times] "While I think HRW on balance does more good than harm, I can't say the same about AI [Amnesty International], and haven't thought that for quite a while." -- Kenneth Anderson's forthcoming views on his experience with the NGOs sound as if they'll be worth waiting for [Volokh] NGOs are pressuring Australia to adopt a national human rights statute so as to allow actions in its courts to enforce standards of international human rights law [Philip Lynch/The Age, Oz AI] And isn't it odd, reflects Prof. Bainbridge, that all the talk of universal jurisdiction for human rights crimes never results in the arrest of someone like Kim Jong Il?
