Dramatic expansion in the acceptance and institutionalization of ideas of human rights is one of the remarkable achievements of global action in the late 20th century. Campaigns to try to extend recognition of human rights and to improve enforcement are active. Nonetheless, the expansion of rights regimes confronts a number of limits today. I want to speak first of several of these limits in a general way, second of the relationship of ethics to politics and development and how this relates to the specific context in which rights regimes expanded, and third of a possible complement to the logic of universalistic equivalence which underpins many accounts of human rights, a focus on connections that may help us confront some issues better.
