National Sovereignty Vs. International Human Rights.

1) Reflections on the International Human Rights System

Judge Navi (Navanethem ) Pillay, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Judge Pillay, a South African national of Indian Tamil origin, was the first woman to start a law practice in her home province of Natal in 1967, was the first non-white woman judge of the High Court of South Africa.
She was the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights from 2008 to 2014 and previously served as the judge on the International Criminal Court (ICC) and was President of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

She was a leading defense attorney for anti-apartheid, exposing torture, and helping establish key rights for prisoners on Robben Island. She is one of the co-founders of Equality Now, an NGO for women's rights. If that wasn't impressive enough, she has been involved with organizations working on issues relating to children, detainees, victims of torture, and of domestic violence and other social and cultural rights.
