Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0719049237, Paperback)

Human rights now occupy a key place in international law and international relations. Nearly 100 states have accepted the United Nations Covenants of 1966; regional systems of human rights are in operation in Europe, Africa and Latin America; and organisations such as the ILO and Unesco have their own instruments and procedures. Human Rights in the World explains what the current guarantees of human rights are and how they work. Substantially rewritten and updated to take into account the ending of the Cold War, this new edition includes such issues as the War Crimes Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the role of the UN Commissioner for Human Rights. Authoritative, comprehensive and up-to-date, the book is an invaluable source of reference for students, scholars and practitioners.
