The essay aims to demonstrate how human rights and state sovereignty are inextricably inter- related yet incongruous. The theme of the essay has diverging point of views due to which we cannot proceed with a single thesis. The essay contends with the hypothesis that state sovereignty subjugates the international declarations of human rights because of supremacy to implement the international laws. The domestic laws might concur or refuse to adhere to its policies. However, in certain cases the international pressure has also endowed the abidance of a state to the international human right laws. The above-mentioned hypothesis is supported by historic illustrations. The essay exemplifies the incidents where sovereignty and human rights have complemented each other. Thorough examination of the factors causing the states to approve to the international instruments which are contradictory to their national interest is provided. Finally, the primary purpose is to examine the issues of denial of right to dignity to the stateless population due to the vested authority of implementation of human rights in the hands of sovereign powers.
