Overview

International Human Rights, now more than ever, is at the forefront of global politics and encompasses a broad and diverse range of subjects, issues and geographical jurisdictions. This book takes a thematic approach to the subject by collecting material around concepts and frameworks rather than specific rights making it the ideal companion for most courses in International Human Rights.

Cases and material are clearly separated from the main body of the text so that extracted material is immediately recognizable. The surrounding text contextualizes each extract and explains the relevant issues, while questions throughout the book encourage students to analyse and debate the material they are reading. This book is ideal for students seeking to truly engage with and understand the key issues concerning the study of international human rights.

This second edition has been fully updated to take into account key developments since the publication of the previous edition in 2006 including the reform of the UN mechanisms. Each chapter now also includes expanded author commentary as well as more questions to encourage students to reflect and consider the broader issues and context of the law. New chapter summaries outline the content of each chapter and a detailed table of contents has been added, making it easier to locate specific topics within the text. Finally additional guidance is provided to help students to locate sources online and develop research skills within this expanding and exciting area of law.
