Are the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions proof of the success or failure of human rights in the last sixty years? Will the NATO bombing of Libya improve or reduce the chances of democratic change in North Africa and the Middle East? What affect if any will the killing of Osama Bin Laden have on the growth of peoples' movements for change? What role should Western human rights activists play now in advancing the cause of freedom?
