The internationalization of the human rights standards and the creation of the basic human rights conventions can be regarded as a great success of the international community. Nevertheless, it has also become clear that there is a wide gap between written norms and practice, and the current mechanisms prove insufficient to protect and promote human rights. The author argues that the effort of the international community to compel countries to protect human rights has essentially failed. Even the current European regime, in particular the related mechanism of the European Union, is unsuitable for managing the violation of human rights standards.
