Dissertation: Autocracies' Delegation Preferences to International Human Rights Organizations

Projekt: Dissertationsprojekt


Autocracies sustain their power mainly due to human rights violations. Therefore, autocracies would not be expected to delegate authority to international human rights organizations that reveal human rights abuses and contribute to democratization processes. I observe, however, that some autocracies support even the highest level of authority delegation. Namely, they decide to delegate authority to human rights monitoring bureaucracies instead of shutting them down. To solve this puzzle, I ask: “Why do autocracies prefer to delegate authority to international human rights organizations?” I argue that if autocracies have managed to impose monitoring missions on their rival states, then autocracies should prefer to delegate authority to monitoring bureaucracies.
