8 How Can Poor Countries with Resource Limitations Be Held to the Same Human Rights Standards as Rich Countries? Steps towards the full realization of rights must be deliberate, concrete and targeted as clearly as possible towards meeting a government’s human rights obligations. All appropriate means, including the adoption of legislative measures and the provision of judicial remedies as well as administrative, financial, educational and social measures, must be used in this regard. This neither requires nor precludes any particular form of government or economic system being used as the vehicle for the steps in question.

In the aftermath of Second World War, the international community adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR, 1948). However, by the time that States were prepared to turn the provisions of the Declaration into binding law, the Cold War had overshadowed and polarized human rights into two separate categories. The West argued that civil and political rights had priority and that economic and social rights were mere aspirations. The Eastern bloc argued to the contrary that rights to food, health and education were paramount and civil and political rights secondary.

It is my firm personal conviction that leadership is nothing if it is not linked to the collective purposes of the society. The effectiveness of the leaders must be gauged, not by their charisma, or their visibility, or the so-called power they hold, but by the actual social change they create, measured by the satisfaction of human needs and expectations. I do speak of moral leadership, where values have a decisive place, where leaders assume consummate responsibility for their commitments, and thereby produce social change that is truly relevant to the needs, aspirations, and values of the society.
