Structure of international system limits opportunities for moral actions, there are principles; sovereignty and non- intervention that are the bedrock of the system, and conflict about values themselves (divergent conceptions of human rights) We almost come to a specific assessment/evaluation of one particular case, and most of the time it is a failure. From a moral standing we need an active policy, but to contemplate minimal intervention it is extremely difficult to put that into practice, Moreover hr issues are perceived as another attempt by the west to impose standards of the developed world and these standards seem to reflect first and foremost their own parochial interest rather than universal good.
