Abstract [en]

This article suggests a re-interpretation of human rights accountability taking into account the globalization process, the crisis of the modern nation-state and the new role-played by transnational, national and local actors in implementing and developing human rights law. The focus on impact and accountability is meant to demonstrate the importance of, and the legal basis for, broadening human rights advocacy in addressing additional actors. Non-state actors contribute to the production, interpretation and implementation of international human rights norms either directly or indirectly. They have also contributed toward underlining a core of basic values and common concerns on which to build a new normative people-centered framework. To counteract the limits and weakness of the Nation-State, it is imperative to strengthen the transnational advocacy of promotion and protection of human rights, which can create a “cosmopolitan consciousness of human rights" in the global world.
