Peace Agreements and Human Rights

Christine Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the provision of future protection of human rights through institutions. It considers the mechanisms for entrenching rights, such as bills of rights; measures aimed at providing social and economic justice; mechanisms for rights enforcement; and reform of the criminal apparatus, including policing. The chapter notes that the relative ease with which these issues can be negotiated, because of their ‘win-win’ potential, obscures the way in which the self-determination debate tends to re-emerge at the point at which they are implemented. It analyzes the relationship between the formulation of group rights through self-determination and individual rights protections.
