(p.511) 10 The Growing Disillusion
Human Rights and the End of Empire


Oxford University Press

This chapter traces the history of the United Nations negotiations in 1949 and 1950, and the continuing conflicts over the drafting of the covenant, which led the British negotiators to complete disillusion with the process. By this time however Britain had transferred its attention to the European negotiations, and in 1950 the text of the European Convention had been adopted by the Council of Europe.

Keywords:   United Nations, disillusion, drafting of covenant, European Convention, Council of Europe
