    This book is an optimistic but cautionary tale of these developments in democracy and human rights around the world. It is founded on a Hobessian assumption about human nature but seeks to show that the world has sought to construct a Lockean and Rawlsian solution ‘for our own sake’. The Foreign Affairs Council in July , adopted a new EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy for to "Keeping Human Rights at the Heart of the EU".Its implementation is a joint responsibility of the EEAS, the Commission and the EU Member States, in close consultation with the European Parliament and civil society.

      In the sequel to "Religious Minorities Under Muslim Rule", Tesneem Alkiek studies the Ottoman millet system to demonstrate that religious tolerance was a hallmark of Muslim societies and discusses the external factors that indicate that preferring the community over the individual is not a guarantor of true tolerance. Populism and human rights: a new playbook Guest article by César Rodríguez-Garavito and Krizna Gomez, Dejusticia, Colombia The proliferation of populist governments and movements creates serious risks and challenges for human rights around the world, from India, the United States and Venezuela to Hungary, the Philippines, Russia and Turkey.

    Minority Rights II: Protecting Minority Groups in Society. Madisonian and Millian principles safeguard individual and political minorities. But, as de Tocqueville observed above, the danger of majority tyranny lies also in the oppression of minority groups in society based on criteria such as skin color, ethnicity or nationality, religion, sexual orientation, and other group characteristics. Human Rights in Democracies Violations of the right to the physical integrity of the person, such as torture, cruel and unusual punishment, extra-judicial executions, disappearances, and political imprisonment have long been treated as an anomaly in democratically governed societies.
