BRICS, Human Rights, and the New International Legal Order - Few matters generate as much consensus in international affairs today as the need to rebuild the world geopolitical order. A retooled international order, Castañeda contends, would be far more representative of the distribution of power in the world today, but it is not clear whether it would be better. Changes in Libya and Egypt in the past year, along with the conflict in Syria, have made these questions even more pressing. #Law
