Readership: Scolars and students of international human rights law. It will also be of interest to members of human rights organizations. It also includes material on preparing claims which may be of interest to human rights law practitioners.
Christian Tomuschat, Professor of Constitutional and International Law, Humboldt University, Berlin
Review(s) from previous edition"A good book ... well organized and clearly written, and includes a wealth of important information (and citations). It will be particularly helpful for courses that want to place emphasis on human rights practice. It is also a healthy reminder of the fact that, despite the many setbacks, the human rights discourse is here to stay. - Political Science Quarterly
