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.
