Summary

This comprehensive work provides an introduction to human rights law, policy, and process. International Human Rights begins with an overview, then discusses treaties, procedures for monitoring compliance and responding to gross violations, use of adjudicative remedies, refugee and international labor law, and causes of human rights violations.
The Third Edition addresses these significant developments in the human rights arena:

  • Emergence of criminal law as a potential response to crimes against humanity
  • Increased attention to remedies for victims whose rights have been violated
  • Emergence of the United Nations Security Council
  • Increased acceptance of treaties
  • Unleashing of ethnic hatred
  • Establishment of non-government human rights organizations
