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.
