Publisher: Longman Pub Group; 1 edition (June 2002)
For undergraduate (LLB) and postgraduate (LLM) courses in International Human Rights Law and International Relations. The primary aim of this new book is to provide students, academics and legal practitioners with a comprehensive introduction to the broad scope of international human rights law. The practical approach offers an understanding of the workings of human rights protection and presents a useful legal analysis of highly sensitive issues including non-discrimination, rights of minorities, indigenous peoples, and the rights of women and children. The study also presents a detailed consideration of new areas coming within the ambit of human rights law, such as international terrorism in the aftermath of 11 September 2001. The book aims to reflect the recent growth in the substance and practice of international human rights law.
