Main Article Content



The sovereignty today still constitutes a large part of the reasons for the limitations of the global human rights system, as countries strongly adhere to their sovereignty in the face of the global human rights movement, even if it means violating the rights of their citizens, oblivious to the fact that adherence to the global rules of human rights is essentially an affirmation of the principle of sovereignty. This is because countries have committed to the global rules of human rights by their own will, so the true universality of human rights is based on national action and therefore does not fundamentally conflict between international protection of human rights and the principle of sovereignty.
