This widely-acclaimed coursebook provides an analytical and thought-provoking approach to international human rights law from renowned authorities in the field. An excellent selection of cases and materials from a broad range of sources accompany in the book on line alongside notes and questions in the text encouraging students to think critically about the law. Accessible to students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the book is designed to provide trenchant legal analysis whilst considering the wider social and cultural context of human rights. In doing so, it looks beyond the traditional viewpoints and also considers the rights of indigenous peoples, democratization and globalization and thus is versatile enough to be of use to students worldwide. Post September 11 material on conflict, terrorism and international criminal law is also included. This third edition will be accompanied by a new companion web site which will house the Annex of Documents, allowing them to be updated between editions.
