I should like to sound an optimistic note concerning the recognition of human dignity in the present era. In fact, I believe we are witnessing a turning point in world civilization. Long-standing legal doctrines and the consigning to oblivion the fate of women in times of war have, in the last decade or so, been superseded by the institution of legal processes designed to require individuals to assume personal responsibility for violations of International Humanitarian Law.
