Overview

"Truly global in both approach and coverage, this second edition of Textbook on International Human Rights provides an ideal introduction to a complex subject. The text is accessible for newcomers to the subject, beginning with a brief analysis of the development and history of the subject and a discussion of the role of the United Nations in this area. Examples are drawn from international and regional law to illustrate vital contemporary issues such as freedom of expression, the right to education, and minority rights." The second edition has been fully revised and updated, including new developments relating to the International Criminal Court, the African Union and the Organisation of American states, and a new chapter on group rights.
