"I think Christianity is under threat [in the Middle East] ... I am very alarmed about what is happening to them."

Headlines and sharp rhetoric about war crimes and crimes against humanity seem so common that they raise this question: Are we as a global society in fact making progress in protecting human rights because of higher awareness, or are we actually heading in the wrong direction?

Perhaps no one is better equipped to answer this question than Navi Pillay, the highest official in the United Nations responsible for monitoring and investigating human rights abuses around the world.

Describing herself as the "moral voice" that the world created to speak "truth to power", she is approaching the end of her term.
