The world is passing through a very "delicate" moment with regard to human rights.

That's according to Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, who is concerned about the rise of repressive efforts by governments that are struggling to contain violent extremism in their countries.

Ari Gaitanis recently sat down with the High Commissioner and asked him what he sees as the biggest challenges ahead for human rights.
