9780199268627: Human Rights: Between Idealism and Realism (Collected Courses of the Academy of European Law)

This volume presents human rights in action, focussing on their effectiveness as legal tools designed to benefit human beings. By combining conceptual analysis with an emphasis on procedures and mechanisms of implementation, it provides a multidimensional overview of human rights. Beginning with an analysis of the historical and conceptual foundations of human rights, the volume then focusses upon the different mechanisms which may be employed in translating human rights from a promise into a reality. Special emphasis is placed upon the United Nations procedures available to achieve this end.

About the Author:


Christian Tomuschat is Professor of Constitutional and International Law at Humboldt University, Berlin.

Review:


"In Human Rights: Between Realism and Idealism Christian Tomuschat fulfills his title's promise. His account of the place of human rights in domestic legal systems and the international legal order is lucid and thorough, and it offers few concessions either to cynically inclined realists or to starry-eyed idealists.... Human Rights offers an erudite and admirably well-organized overview of the network of formal legal rules and institutions that support human rights."--The American Journal of International Law


"Overall, this is a good book. It is well organized and clearly written, and includes a wealth of important information (and citations). It will be particularly helpful for courses that want to place emphasis on human rights practice. It is also a healthy reminder of the fact that, despite many setbacks, the human rights discourse is here to stay."--Political Science Quarterly
