Transmitting Rights

This is the main theoretical chapter of the book. It presents a three-stage model of social influence within intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). This model suggests that (1) individual IGOs develop a “human rights culture” that reflects the norms that prevail among their member states; (2) each state is exposed to an “IGO Context” that reflects the norms to which it is exposed as a result of its IGO memberships; and that (3) states internalize these norms (to varying extents) as a function of their membership in these organizations. The chapter also discusses limitations to the norm-diffusion process at each stage of the model.

Keywords:   norm diffusion, IGOs, human rights, human rights culture, IGO Context, internalization, norms, diplomats
