Antonio Cassese Reflections on International Law

The great international law scholar in conversation with Giorgio Acquaviva

“I have often participated in conferences where new international treaties on human rights were being drafted, and I have come to understand that governments can make rules with regard to human rights and disregard them at the same time. These experiences were more enlightening than if I had read through the complex holdings of a library.” – Antonio Cassese

A conversation between lawyer Antonio Cassese and journalist Giorgio Acquaviva led to this far-sighted analysis of relevant international issues and the human rights situation in the world. This book stands out for the simplicity and wisdom of a great humanist, as well as for the criteria of an international lawyer experienced in the practice of international law.

With pedagogical insight and great knowledge, Cassese reminds us that indifference to human rights violations is one of the greatest dangers. The most effective way to advocate for human rights is through active civic engagement based on democratic values and strengthening the rule of law. This is the most promising way to achieve what Cassese once called the “dream of human rights.”
