International Human Rights Law offers a thorough, thought-provoking consideration of the essential elements of the subject. It covers all aspects of a typical international human rights course, from philosophical and other foundational issues to substantive rights to systems of protection. It also addresses contemporary challenges to human rights such as terrorism, poverty, and environmental degradation.
Written by leading experts in their respective fields, the textbook offers various perspectives of the multifaceted and contentious subject of human rights. Its comprehensive coverage, accessible style, and pedagogical features make it the ideal companion for the student of human rights. Although written primarily for the law student, it will also be of considerable relevance to the student of international relations, politics or sociology, and an invaluable resource for academics, advocates, and practitioners.
