Human Rights in Crisis

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The 19th volume in the series on Procedural Aspects of International Law, this is a study of states of emergency by a respected scholar with an extensive background in human rights and law in emergency situations. The book begins by categorizing the various kinds of emergency situations, which are then examined for their effect on the rule of law and mechanisms for the protection of human rights. A chapter on standards applicable in states of emergency provides a comparative analysis of treaty-based standards and discusses the efforts of official and private groups to supplement these with non-treaty guidelines. The remainder of the book examines the effectiveness of international institutions and treaty implementation bodies for monitoring states of emergency. This encompasses a critical assessment of UN institutions and the supervisory agencies of regional bodies, such as the Organisation of American States and the Council of Europe. A full chapter is devoted to describing the important contributions of non-governmental human rights organisations in the study and exposure of human rights abuses by governments during states of emergency.

This particular copy is in very good condition. Its exterior has only very slight signs of wear and, inside, the pages are clean and free of any writing, highlighting or markings.

An exhaustive treatment of states of emergency and their effect on human rights, this will be an invaluable resource of students and practitioners in human rights law.
