About the Authors
  • This accessible collection of important international human rights documents is an essential resource for students and researchers of international human rights law. In addition to standard instruments such as the Universal Declaration, the 1966 United Nations Covenants and the European Convention and its Protocols, the volume also features topics and documents such as all core UN human rights treaties and their protocols, key international labour instruments and the obligations of the global financial organisations and multi-national corporations. Taking a broad and historical approach, the collection also incorporates Inter-American, African, Asian and Arab instruments alongside older UN documents and numerous soft law documents. Its approach reflects the diverse nature of international human rights law and the courses which now seek to teach it. This book is also valuable for students of international law, global governance and other courses which discuss the law of international human rights.

    • Gives the broadest perspective on human rights law and where it comes from by including a wider range of documents
    • Provides an easily navigable resource for students, with all documents numbered and organized in a logical manner
    • Assists users with the referencing and citation of documents by including details on where official texts may be found and the adoption of treaties and declarations
