Dur­ing the last 20 years, the Unit­ed Nations Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil has embraced the pro­tec­tion of indi­vid­ual rights as a mat­ter of inter­na­tion­al peace and secu­ri­ty. That said, progress has been uneven and there have been both great strides for­ward and ter­ri­ble set­backs. This time­ly and impor­tant book pro­vides the first com­pre­hen­sive assess­ment about how the Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil works to address major human rights chal­lenges around the world and rec­om­mends ways it can do so more effec­tive­ly, appeal­ing to Jew­ish con­cepts of tikkun olam and gemi­lut hasadim.
