Human Rights are in Decline Around the World. What can be Done About it‪?‬ Global Reboot

    • News Commentary

In large parts of the world, economic and technological progress has made people’s lives significantly better over the past few decades. From China to Africa to Latin America, large swaths of the population are healthier and more prosperous than ever.  
But even as humanity has achieved so much, human rights have regressed in many countries—including some of the wealthier ones. Why is that and what can people do about it?
Those are two of the questions that came up in FP Editor in Chief Ravi Agrawal’s recent conversation with the former United Nations Commissioner on Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein. We’re featuring that conversation in the latest episode of our podcast, Global Reboot.
The show is produced by Foreign Policy in partnership with the Doha Forum.
