Mower evaluates the effectiveness of the regional systems for promotin human rights developed by the Council of Europe and the Organization of American States, examining their structure and performance during the 1980s, specifically the degree to which each region's needs were met by the establishment of working agencies and the enactment of appropriate programs. The comparison of these agencies, analyzed within the framework of their respective economic, social, and political environments, affirms the link between increased awareness of human rights and the necessity for a continually flexible official response.
