Will human rights dominate the international stage by 2022?
By Helen Stacy
In a piece for Global Brief magazine, Helen Stacy makes predictions about the state of international human rights norms and criminal prosecutions by the year 2022. Director of the CDDRL Program on Human Rights, Stacy anticipates that the U.S. will join the International Criminal Court after it has acquired a firm record of indictment on a global level, emboldening new actors on the human rights scene. According to Stacy in twenty years time, human rights will be the only legitimate game in town and the litmus test for international and domestic credibility.
