If for example, the majority of the people in a country would vote in favor of legalizing torture, that would still be undemocratic under the convention.   In this Markets and Democracy Brief, CFR’s Mark Lagon argues for a more consistent approach to human rights promotion than the United States has often pursued in the past.
