Today we publish the 11th FCO Human Rights report - a compendious guide to work great and small around the world by the Government to promote, economic, civil, social and political rights.
In my speech to launch the report I make the distinction between obligations and aspirations - must dos according to national or international law and hope to dos according to our values. The drive for economic and social rights especially are aspirations. Some debate whether there really are universal rights. I believe there are. And that they are defined in important treaties.
