This thesis is about human rights and states. To be more specific, condition of human rights in Somalia. Human rights are universal moral laws of a fundamental nature, belonging to any individual in its relations with the state. Literature treats state as a main protector of human rights and at the same time as a main violator. When protector turns into major threat? Does the state capacity matter? My analysis provides support for my hypothesis that the stronger the state, the better condition of human rights. Strong state is able to protect its citizens, while weak states lack capacity to provide security. The main purpose of this thesis is to investigate whether Somalia as a failed state has capacity to protect human rights.
