The International Law of Human Rights

Author(s): , Adam McBeth, Justine Nolan

The International Law of Human Rights provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts and theories of human rights, the institutions, instruments and implementation structures for protecting human rights, and the contemporary challenges of human rights law. Author commentary and examples illuminate a range of primary and secondary materials to rigorously cover the breadth of human rights law in a way that is interesting and engaging for all readers. This edition includes: ‘Snapshots’ that provide real-life illustrations to help bring the material to life, and demonstrate current practice and issues; covers the implementation of international human rights law in Australia; and explores contemporary challenges for the international human rights regime posed by terrorism, transnational corporations, and the place of extraterritorial obligations and non-state actors.
