Abstract

The Application of Human Rights Policies needs to be taken from a Local Perspective, in order to guarantee the effectiveness and the resulting achievements. I present a practical case study in the context of a Brazilian favela to better illustrate how the external influence can directly affect the results. I offer discussions about the local activity as the main role in a Human Rights project, indicating challenges and strategies that can be used in the practical field. As a theoretical approach, I present a discussion around New Regionalism and the internationalization of Human Rights. My argument, as presented in the title of this article, is that external influence is correlated with the results of any Human Rights implementation and that the Local Perspective is the main framework for Local Policies promotion, based on the social point of view and adapting legal frameworks to real world scenarios.
