This main goal will be achieved through the following milestone: - Development of an educational program for capacity building, following an educational program about Clinical Ethics, covering the needs of the involved countries, and considering its cultural features. Delegates at the meeting raised a series of important issues about Great Power dominance, the importance of international law, regional agreements for security, and economic and social problems. Human rights issues figured prominently in the speeches and resolutions.
At the Conference in Mexico City, many Latin American states argued that World War II had created a worldwide demand that rights should be recognised and protected on the international level.
Emphasis added. Acting on these concerns, the delegates in Mexico City instructed the Inter-American Juridical Committee to prepare a draft declaration of the rights and duties of man. Pan American Union, Draft Declaration , 57—8. Latin American delegations, and especially Uruguay, Chile, Panama, and Mexico, argued in favour of the international protection of rights at the San Francisco conference in Latin American countries made up twenty of the fifty states present at the San Francisco Conference.
Because there were many democratic countries with a shared worldview at this historical moment in Latin America, they became the most important voting bloc at San Francisco. Morsink, The Universal Declaration , Lauren, The Evolution , , ft. They were able to do this in part because they supported and reinforced a position already held by a minority faction with the US government that had lost influence in the drafting of the Dumbarton Oaks proposal.
But without Latin American protagonism it is unlikely that the Charter would contain references to human rights. The record of the success of the NGO lobbying effort and the pro-human rights position adopted by Latin American delegations find testimony in the Charter itself. The final UN Charter has seven references to human rights, including key amendments whereby promotion of human rights is listed as one of the basic purposes of the organisation, and the Economic and Social Council ECOSOC is called on to set up a human rights commission, the only specifically mandated commission in the Charter.
In particular, the initiatives of the Latin American countries helped extend the economic, social, and human rights objectives in the Charter, in particular articles 55 and 56, upon which so much later human rights work of the organisation rested. Santa Cruz, Cooperar o Perecer, If the Charter, adopted at a high point of post war collaboration, had not contained references to human rights and specifically to a Human Rights Commission, it is quite likely that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights would not have been drafted in The inclusion of the human rights language in the Charter of the UN was a critical juncture that channelled the history of post-war global governance in the direction of setting international norms and law about the international promotion of human rights.
This language was not the language of the Great Powers, and was finally adopted by the Great Powers only in response to pressures from smaller states and civil society. The initial unwillingness of the Great Powers to include references to human rights in the UN Charter calls into question both a realist and a critical theory explanation for the origins of human rights norms.
If human rights emerged primarily from the goals and needs of powerful states, as realists claim, then why did these powerful states not include human rights language in the Dumbarton Oaks draft? See, for example, Stephen D. Only China, the weakest of the four, pressed for inclusion of some human rights language.
Although the human rights provisions did not carry teeth at this early stage, states were very wary of the sovereignty implications of the human rights issue. If human rights policy was the result of powerful states, as realist theory suggests, it simply cannot help us understand why these powerful states came to support international human rights norms so reluctantly.
If, as critical theorists suggest, human rights was a discourse that powerful states used to reaffirm their identity as superior to the weaker nations, and to promote monitoring and surveillance, why did more powerful states resist the adoption of human rights discourses and less powerful states promote it? I believe that both realist and critical theory accounts have misunderstood and misrepresented the history of human rights ideas and human rights policies.
Reading the history of the human rights policies reveals that human rights policies, especially multilateral policies, have often been embraced by the less powerful to try to restrain the more powerful.
These less powerful groups are more likely to succeed, however, when they also have allies within powerful states. Both states and NGOs demanded an international organisation that would have more far-reaching power to enforce international human rights norms.
Uruguay proposed to make it possible to suspend countries from the organisation that persistently violated human rights. The final language, however, only called upon the UN to promote, encourage, and assist respect for human rights. As a result, the Charter mandate on human rights is less firm than many states and NGOs desired, calling on the UN to promote and encourage respect for human rights, rather than to actually protect rights.
More far-reaching alternative visions were presented and articulated at the San Francisco Conference, and the NGO consultants and a handful of democratic Latin American states were among the most eloquent spokespeople for those alternative visions. These alternative visions continued to be further elaborated in the drafting of the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man, which began just as soon as the San Francisco conference ended.
The dramatic story of the drafting of the UDHR and has been told well and at length elsewhere. But because the two documents were being drafted around the same time, these two processes were overlapping and complementary, and it is useful to discuss them together. But what I want to stress here is the process of drafting the American Declaration was always a step ahead of the drafting of the UDHR. Because the American Republics had requested a draft declaration of rights from the Inter-American Juridical Committee at the Mexico City Conference in before the San Francisco conference, the American process had a head start over the process of drafting the UDHR that had to wait until after the San Francisco meeting and after ratifications of the UN Charter to get started.
The Inter-American Judicial Committee worked rapidly to produce this complete draft declaration, including 21 articles and another 50 pages of full commentary, by December 31, , only six months after the San Francisco Conference had concluded. Pan American Union, Draft Declaration.

The American states expanded the final American Declaration beyond this draft declaration, adding eight additional articles on rights and ten additional articles on the duties of states, but all the core civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of the American Declaration are present in the draft. In view of the widespread denial of these political rights by totalitarian governments in recent years it may be well to reinstate the basic theory underlying them.
The state is not an end in itself, it is only a means to an end; it is not in itself a source of rights but the means by which the inherent rights of the individual person may be made practically effective… Not only, therefore, are particular governments bound to respect the fundamental rights of man, but the state itself is without authority to override them.
Pan American Union, Draft Declaration , This is as clear a statement as possible of the doctrine of popular sovereignty that was part of the legal tradition in Latin America.
The American Declaration was completed before the second round of drafting of the UDHR, and it was very influential in the text of the UDHR, particularly for the articles on social and economic rights. The American Declaration includes 38 articles, of which 28 articles are devoted to an enumeration of rights, and 10 to duties. This attention to duties sets the American Declaration apart from the UDHR, which does not enumerate specific duties, although it does mention them in Article Of the 28 articles on rights, approximately two thirds of the articles address civil and political rights, and approximately one-third address economic, social and cultural rights, including the right to health, to education, to work and fair remuneration, to culture, leisure, social security, and property.
The American Declaration has a single right — that of petition — as well as the nine additional articles on duties, that are not in the UDHR.
John P. Although the Secretariat outline was modified significantly during the debates, the influence of these diverse non-governmental and inter-governmental sources are clearly seen in the final version of the UDHR. Cuba, Panama, and Chile were the first three countries to submit full drafts of bills of rights to the Commission. Each of these contained references to rights to education, food, and health care, and other social security provisions. Humphrey, a social democrat, used these drafts extensively in preparing the secretariat draft for the Commission to consider.
The research showing the impact of Latin American countries on the inclusion of economic and social rights in the UDHR corrected a long-held belief that the economic and social rights in the UDHR were primarily the result of Soviet pressure. In addition to their contributions to the economic and social rights in the UDHR, Latin American delegates made other important contributions.
