(it should extend for people in other countries regardless of political jurisdictions that separate us) (“US-centric View”) - Inadequate human rights abroad can adversely affect us (there can be refugee flows spilling over into your country. European refugee flow giving more countries and more people reason to think about human rights violations in middle east because now it effects them)

- It’s not a nice for neighboring countries to be unstable politically and economically ( more of a self interested reason to care about having prosperous neighbors) - Governments that violate human rights tend to harbor terrorists (Gives countries another reason to be self interested, in order to decrease the likelihood for countries harboring terrorists) Are human rights western values? Human rights as rights that western developed countries push onto other countries “Early ideas about general human right thus did not originate exclusively in one location like the west or even with any particular form of government like liberal democracy .” -Global philosophies and religions constitute human rights and the idea of people’s responsibilities to their fellow humans.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
