ABSTRACT
This Article will explore the evolving methodology of human rights and its impact on state sovereignty in the twenty-first century and review the trends driving that evolution. It will first identify the historical underpinnings for the classical methodology from as early as the eighteenth century and discuss its measured success, apparent failures, and contemporary application. It will then analyze developing methodology and events, including the Global War on Terrorism, that have fueled more pragmatic and interventionist initiatives. Above all, this Article is a cautionary tale in light of the heady successes of human rights, which calls for reining in an interventionist approach.
