We often fail to see important dimensions of international human rights (HR) protection because we use lenses that do not reveal them. This short article suggests a way of looking at HR protection that I believe has value in many contexts and for many – those who make decisions about human rights and those who suffer from deprivation of those rights. It reveals important factors and forces that influence HR protection, but that conventional lenses often fail to reveal. In doing so it opens up potential avenues for increasing the effectiveness of efforts to improve such protections.
