Ius Gentium: Comparative Perspectives on Law and Justice #16: The Universalism of Human Rights Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is there universalism of human rights? If so, what are its scope and limits? This book is a doctrinal attempt to define universalism of human rights, as well as its scope and limits. The book presents tests of universalism on international, regional and national constitutional levels. It is maintained that universalism of human rights is both a 'concept' and a 'normative reality'. The normative character of human rights is scrutinized through the study of international and regional agreements as well as national constitutions. As a consequence, limitations of normativity are identified, usually on the international level, and take the form of exceptions, reservations, and interpretations.

Synopsis:

Based on national reports of 23 countries submitted to the XVIIIth International Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law (2010), this book presents a discussion on the universalism of human rights from national perspectives around the world.
