This project will investigate the procedures of the UN and their bodies working on human rights when member states violate them. This will be done as a case study of Ethiopia and how the UN relates to them violating human rights. The philosophy of science applied will be positivist, testing hypothesis on the matter. The analysis is based on data from the UN and the Human Rights Watch, to be able to understand how, why, and what goes on in Ethiopia and the UN, and this be done utilising two theories, neo liberalism and neo realism.
