Saudi Arabia's engagement in, and interaction with, the UN human rights system: an analytical review
The purpose of this article is to examine the way in which Saudi Arabia has engaged in, and interacted with, the UN human rights system along with its declaratory, promotional, and monitoring mechanisms. This article argues that Saudi Arabia has participated in the creation of the international human rights project and has shown, especially in the last few years, signs of greater adherence to the internationally-recognised human rights standards. An analytical review demonstrates that Saudi Arabia has moved from a limited involvement to a tendency to be part of the international human rights arrangements, as of the mid-1990s. It concludes by making suggestions and posing questions on the influence of the UN human rights system in enhancing progress in human rights in a country like Saudi Arabia.
