Summary

In the twentieth century, the international community increasingly recognized that constitutional guarantees of basic rights sometimes prove inadequate or even illusory when military coups, armed conflicts, or repressive governments disrupt or deliberately ignore the rule of law and constitutional limits on the exercise of power. International and regional organizations created or reformed after World War II thus concluded that human rights must be considered a matter of international concern if individuals and groups are to be ensured their fundamental rights and freedoms.
