The role of the UN - human rights interventions

Ruth Tarrant

14th February 2018

It's worth building up a series of examples if you're planning on teaching the Global Politics option for Edexcel. The latest from the Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe detention issue in Iran is that the Human Rights organisation Redress has now asked the UN to intervene on the grounds of torture.

Section 2.3 of the Edexcel Global Politics spec requires students to consider the extent to which international institutions, such as the UN, are capable of tackling global issues including human rights concerns, as well as NGOs such as charity. While the case is a sad one, it does lend itself to current debate on this issue.
