This book is invaluable to those studying undergraduate courses on international human rights law. Beginning with a brief analysis of the development of international human rights and the history of the subject, the text allows full consideration of the work of the UN before turning in more detail to regional systems of human rights focusing on Europe, the Americas and Africa. The second half of the book looks at a variety of substantive rights ranging from the right to liberty to the right to work and the right to education, with illustrations from both regional and international law. The second edition has been fully revised and updated providing students with a comprehensive grasp of current debate in the area. It includes new developments relating to the International Criminal Court and the EU, a new chapter on group rights.Über den Autor:
