Abstract:Using as a case study the role that Morocco played in the drafting process of The United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, this dissertation explores whether human rights are universal or are merely a colonial product. Through an investigation of pertinent UN archives, this research asserts that the drafting of human rights conventions involves negotiations between states that belong to different forms of civilization worldwide, a stance that I share with the scholar Susan Waltz. By analyzing the passive role that Morocco played in the construction of the Convention against Torture, my research expands on previous scholarship. Through an investigation of Moroccan colonial and post-colonial histories, and Moroccan carceral literature, this research opposes artificial binaries such as positing cultural imperialism against political delegitimization of human rights. Although many scholars, including Joseph Massad and Abdullahi An-Naïm, maintain that human rights are a byproduct of colonialism and imperialism, the analysis of the role that Morocco played in the drafting of the Convention against Torture demonstrates that human rights are an active discipline, and not simply an artifact of colonialism or imperialism.
