The depressing circumstances of contemporary political life in the Arab world has led me to make this study, aiming to examine the position of Arab countries in the light of their obligations under international law, by analysis of the instruments of international human rights law which recognise and aim to protect certain rights and freedoms. I intend to examine the status of those instruments whether at the national, regional or international level. I will examine the Arab governments' legal position according to international institutions and the instruments, in particular, to what extent they recognize them and subject to what restrictions. I will review whether those rules and instruments are acceptable to all the Arabs and if Arab states have made relevant reservations or derogations. The purpose of this analysis is to assess the extent to which the Arab individual's rights and freedoms are protected, and the legal remedy available to him, in the light of international human rights law, as well as in the regional and national provisions which aim to achieve protection of human rights. I examine different concepts of human rights and other international issues related to them, including the Islamic concept of international law and human rights, as in the conte.J1lporary Arab world religion continues to be a significant factor.
