Abstract:     
In this short essay I focus on the contemporary human rights movement, and in particular three broad areas of human rights. I provide a descriptive listing or cataloguing, commencing with a short consideration of the definition of what we refer to as the human rights movement. Based on my remarks as part of a panel discussion, I consider the human rights movements in three somewhat distinct categories: first, the structure and proliferation of human rights organizations; second, the seemingly growing human rights culture; and third, human rights violations by nations and private actors.
