  1. The obstacles to the application of some human rights texts
  2. The principle of Non-interference
  3. How the concept of humanitarian intervention tends to override the norm of non-interventionism

Human rights principles have a long history, dating back to at least the Magna Carta of 1215. However, it is in the second half of the 20th century, notably with the creation of the United Nations (UN) in the aftermath of the Second World War, that the world community witnessed the proliferation of texts protecting human rights. However, the adherence to these rights is still a topical issue today. After analyzing the obstacles to the application of these human rights texts, we will study the principle of non-interference on which international public law is based, and will conclude by explaining how the concept of humanitarian intervention tends to override the norm of non-interventionism.
