Accurate though I believe this practical sociological understanding of the ambivalent nature of rights regimes to be, it is also an understanding that may prompt some rather dangerous ideas. Especially dangerous, in my view, is the suggestion one hears increasingly often from those angered by the numerous hypocrisies that have been, and remain part of, human rights thought and practice, namely that a politics grounded in an optimistic view of human nature may be better able to protect individuals than the law since the latter is grounded in a pessimistic view that almost invites victimization (Badiou 2001).

This is because the principles involved in human rights law are interpreted from often divergent sources and legal histories, requiring a decision not determined by legal sources. 27 There are potentially conflicting principles present in IHRL that need to be clarified through interpretation. Thus, human rights law is, in this respect, continually being made by The legislation of human rights 22 interpretations and judgements. Such a practice could not take place in any coherent or consistent way, unless there was more beyond positive human rights law than positivists concede: an idea about the point and purpose of this area of law.
