The first and foremost challenge that the United Nation faced in its attempt to promote human right in a global context is the controversy within its approach to the concept of human right and freedom (Wright, 2001: 59). The perpetual debate on the universality of human right apparently overshadowed its achievements to a great extent. The oriental scholars and political authorities often are often found to criticize the provisions of the UN Charter of human rights considering that these provisions are completely “devoid of any legal commitment” (Flinterman and Gutter, n.d: 1).

Indeed the trend for the promotion of human right lies in the founding premises of the organization.
