International Human Rights Law : Six Decades After the UDHR and Beyond

International Human Rights Law : Six Decades After the UDHR and Beyond Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Editors Baderin (law, Oriental and African studies, U. of London) and Ssenyonjo (law, Brunel University) have assembled 28 articles on the subject of human rights and the impact of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) from an impressively credentialed array of international contributors. The text begins with a well-organized and thorough introductory chapter that lays out the structure of the book, provides a general overview of human rights before and after the UDHR, and briefly summarizes the concepts discussed in each of the contributed articles. The subsequent articles are then organized under four headings: concepts and norms, mechanisms and implementation, responsibilities and remedies, and a final section titled "And Beyond." Citations are provided in extensive footnotes in each article. Students and practitioners of human rights law will find this text to be a comprehensive study of the impact of the UDHR and a useful reference for understanding modern international human rights issues.
