In the last decade, grave violations of human rights have occurred during states of emergency such as armed conflict, subversion, and terrorism. Many sovereign states are notorious for using a state of emergency as an excuse for breaching human rights, and one of the most important problems in the international protection of human rights is that of identifying the standards governing these rights. This volume examines human rights in the context of treaty law and general international law. It analyzes the rules, principles, and obligations which international law has developed to cope with these situations.
