Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415343372, Hardcover)

This is a comprehensive and timely guide to the United Nations (UN) human rights machinery.

Today, virtually all UN bodies and specialized agencies are undertaking efforts to incorporate the promotion or protection of human rights into their programs and activities. The United Nations and Human Rights examines these recent initiatives within the broader context of human rights practice. It provides the most up-to-date and incisive analysis of this increasingly important area of global politics. Issues that are examined include:
* the historical and philosophical development of the UN human rights system
* the UN structures and procedures for addressing human rights
* changes to the UN human rights machinery post-9/11
* the managing of international conflict
* the promotion of individual rights
* the advancement of agendas of social movements
This book is essential reading for students and practitioners of human rights, international relations and international law.
