    1. Fidel Castro seems to act with more humanity towards the opponents
    2. Influence of international pressure

For World War II, a large majority of states had been involved in international organisations, like the UN, and they have been linked by international conventions and treaties. Obviously, because of the increase in international relationships, states always have an eye on anothers politics, which means that they are more or less compelled to act as the others want them to. That is why we can wonder if the state sovereignty principle can be challenged by the international pressures coming from more influent states, international organisations or non governmental organisations, or, more explicitly, if some 'non- democratic' states can be forced by different means to adopt measures in favour of human rights, whereas those very states used to violate them before, even if they had ratified treaties protecting human rights. That kind of situation may concern a lot of countries throughout the world, moreover, it is believed that the developing countries are more susceptible to be involved in human rights abuses. However, even the most developed countries like the United States have violated some human rights and have eventually respected them due to international pressure.
