9780521780421: The Judicial Application of Human Rights Law: National, Regional and International Jurisprudence

The original human rights concepts articulated in the 1948 Universal Declaration have evolved considerably. Nihal Jayawickrama encapsulates the judicial interpretation of human rights law from all available sources in one comprehensive volume, covering superior court case law of over fifty-five countries, the jurisprudence of the U.N. Human Rights monitoring bodies, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Inter-American system. This definitive compendium will be essential for legal practitioners, government and non-governmental officials, and academics and students of constitutional law and the international law of human rights.
