Problem

Lack of political will

Other Names:
Lack of political will to cooperate
Lack of political commitment to act on problems
Political unwillingness to change
Failure of political will
Nature:

Political will is the magic ingredient of human commitment to a cause which makes things work or make things happen. Without it there is stagnation or, at least, inaction, as expressed in such statements as: "What is missing is political will at the top"; "Lack of political will created difficult obstacles to economic integration"; "It's not a technical problem, it's only a question of political will".

Claim:

The problem is not lack of laws to care for human rights. The problem is a lack of political will by governments, their silence and their inability to control their own security forces.
