MacDonald I. J. Mopho has published “International Human Rights Law Enforcement: The Incongruous Voices That Prevail” (published by Trafford Publishing). This book explores the paradoxical stance of countries like North Korea, Russia, Iran, and the United States, questioning their commitment to international peace and security. It sheds light on the contradictory voices of states that advocate for human rights protection and enforcement but also violate them, posing a threat to peace and security.
In this book, Mopho takes readers on a journey through the complexities of human rights, tracing their origins to the fusion of Roman law and Christianity. He uncovers the disheartening reality of states violating the very rights they are supposed to safeguard. Mopho examines the violation of the right to freedom of religion and belief, presenting compelling cases to support his arguments. He advocates for respect for the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, considering the significant global following of religions like Christianity.
Mopho also delves into the legal foundations of human rights and addresses the challenges posed by state protection and enforcement of individual religious freedom. He critically examines the impact of religious nationalism on individual rights and emphasizes the need for harmonious coexistence. The book concludes with a thought-provoking discussion on the conflicting voices that hinder human rights protection and enforcement, offering suggestions for a more just and peaceful world.
Mopho states, “We are currently living in a time where those who perceive themselves as strong are trampling on others, both as individuals within society and as states in the international community. I argue that such human rights violations will ultimately lead to a chaotic world, jeopardizing peace and security. I provide evidence to support my argument, drawing from historical events preceding wars that claimed millions of lives. I assert that governments of various states are making the same mistakes.”
When asked what he hopes readers will take away from the book, Mopho replied, “Until leaders consciously make decisions and take actions that enhance human rights protections and enforcement, leading to peace and stability, no form of government, whether religious nationalism or secular democracy, can effectively prevent human rights violations and ensure global peace and security. The United Nations’ nearly 80 years of existence offer evidence supporting this fact, emphasizing the need for leaders of member states to do more to respect human rights.” For more information about the book, please visit https://www.trafford.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/855208-international-human-rights-law-enforcement-the-incongruous-voices-that-prevail
