This practical text provides an authoritative guide to human rights for teachers, students and researchers. It presents an increasingly complex field in a straightforward and accessible manner.
There are chapters on the following key themes: Genocide; Torture; Asylum; Slavery; The right to development; Freedom of expression and censorship; Freedom of religion and belief; Children's rights; Women's rights; The rights of indigenous peoples; Human Rights education.
Each chapter has a similar user-friendly format. The chapter summary is followed by a general introduction to the theme. International legal standards are set out in a selection of key documents. The relevant Human Rights organizations are described: UN, regional-governmental and NGO. Because the Handbook does not claim to be exhaustive, each chapter concludes with a brief selection of additional resources for further reading and research.
