This textbook takes a thematic approach to the study of international human rights. The collection of material around concepts and frameworks, rather than specific rights, makes it the ideal companion for most courses in international human rights. International human rights are, now more than ever, at the forefront of global politics and encompass a broad and diverse range of subjects, issues and geographical jurisdictions. This book, covering a wide range of topics, including the fundamental key concepts, reforming human rights and human rights in conflict and emergency situations, aids learning by: separating cases and material from the main body of the text so that extracted material is immediately recognizable contextualizing each extract with surrounding text that explains and elaborates on the relevant issues encouraging students to analyze and debate the material through the use of questions. An ideal resource for students seeking to truly engage with and understand the key issues in the study of international human rights.
