Regional Vis-à-Vis Universal Institution for the Protection of Human Rights with Special Reference to Asia
Regional institution for the protection of human rights was born in order to overcome the weaknesses of universal institution for the protection of human rights. Regional institutions not only protected the human rights of the people in a effective manner but also give the rights to the individual to move against his own State for the violation of human rights. Regional institution also provide remedy to the individual when he does not get remedy from the national system for the protection of human rights. In Asia there is no regional institution for the protection of human rights. For effective protection and enforcement of human rights there is need to establish a regional institution in Asia.
