This well-established book has been revised and updated to reflect recent developments in the field of human rights. The first part, ‘International Human Rights Law: Questions and Answers’, responds to 113 questions on the topic, starting with the definition of human rights, their development and history, including important documents and conventions. It describes existing covenants, how they work, whom they address and which organizations exist to implement them. It also replies to questions concerning genocide, torture, racial and gender discrimination, as well as the rights of children, minorities, refugees and indigenous people. Furthermore, the role of IGOs and NGOs is described as well as that of human rights education.
In the second part, ‘The Universal Declaration of Human Rights – What the Articles Mean’, the 30 Articles are quoted and explained, including background information and examples.
The book also includes notes that give more detailed information about individual states and their position, memberships and parties involved in treaties, short case studies, in addition to a bibliography providing information for further reading.
