Truly global in its approach and coverage, this book will be invaluable to those studying undergraduate courses on international human rights. The book begins with a brief analysis of the development of international human rights law. The work of the United Nations is considered with exploration of its organizational structure and essential documentation. Attention then turns to the regional systems of human rights focusing on Europe, the Americas and Africa. In each instance, the organizational structure and principal instruments are detailed. The international and regional systems are drawn together in an examination of the methods of enforcing and monitoring the implementation of human rights. The remainder of the book addresses substantive rights. Common terms and potential derogations are discussed along with the concept of non-discrimination before a cross section of rights. This is illustrated by examples drawn from regional and international law. Rights discussed include the right to life and liberty, freedom of expression, the right to work and minority rights.The text concludes with an examination of the right to education and human rights education and looks to the future of international human rights law.Biografía del autor:
