I see that Daniel Cohn-Bendit, the Green/EFA MEP has advocated a democracy credit ratings agency, where countries would be rated AAA, AAB &c according to how they behaved. This is good, because it is in the same direction as the GPEW/Global Greens Global Human Rights Index.
The latter proposal is that the UN should publish annually a league table sorting nations out according to their human rights performance. This will have a continuous, universal effect in improving the human rights performance of nations everywhere.
It's good to see ideas making progress in the global sea of cogitation.
