Political Studies Review
"Oberleitner offers a lucid history, topography and enlightening assessments of the work of the major and some of the minor institutions that define the human rights movement today. The volume will be an excellent resource and guide for activists, civil servants, diplomats, researchers, students and their teachers."
J. Paul Martin, Columbia University
"At last we have a comprehensive account of human rights institutions that brings together international relations and international law perspectives. This panorama of a book will prove as valuable to international officials, diplomats and NGOs as it will to academics and their students."
Kevin Boyle, Human Rights Centre, University of Essex
