The Development of Human Rights Law by the Judges of the International Court of Justice

1625 руб.
The jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice generally demonstrates that no rule of international law can be interpreted and applied without regard to its innate values and the basic principles of human rights. Through its case-law the ICJ has made immense contributions to the development of human rights law, and in so doing continues to provide solutions to mounting international problems, such as terrorism and unilateral use of force. Part I of the book argues that the legislative spirit of contemporary international law lies in the doctrine of human rights and that the spirit of human rights doctrine lies in the principle of human dignity. Furthermore it argues that the processes of international legislation and international adjudication are inseparable, and that there is no norm of international law which does not intertwine the fundamental principle of human dignity with human rights doctrine. Hence human rights law is more a school of law than merely a normative branch of international law, and the ICJ's willingness to engage in the development of human rights law depends upon which judicial ideology its judges subscribe to.In order to evaluate how this human rights spirit is manifested, or occasionally not manifested, through the vast jurisprudence of the ICJ, Parts II and III critically examine the Court's principal contentious and advisory cases in which it has treated human rights questions. The legal reasoning of the Court and the opinions appended to its decisions by its individual judges are analysed in light of the principle of human dignity and the doctrine of human rights.
Human Rights = Environmental Rights? Human Rights = Environmental Rights? Новинка

Human Rights = Environmental Rights?

4839 руб.
One of the most seductive areas where environmentalists may look to strengthen the relationship with the human rights world is in the existence of international legal fora. That is, the existence of a quasi-judicial or judicial international process to force States to comply with international human rights law. Presently, international environmental law is lacking of this kind of mechanism. Hence, an important value added of linking these two areas of international law may be the use of international human rights mechanisms/systems for environmental claims. The clever introduction of environmental claims in international human rights fora could lead to the further development of concepts and consequently help broaden the sphere of protection. With this in mind the primary objectives of this book is to show how human rights and environment relate and the challenges in enforcing Environmental human rights.

Socio-Economic Rights Under the African Jurisprudence

4929 руб.
Socioeconomic rights provide a legal, political and moral framework to challenge policies that perpetuate poverty and inequality in the society. Just as governments are held accountable under human rights law for denying political freedom, so too they are accountable for denying adequate food and healthcare. Therefore, this class of rights serves as a veritable tool for people to participate in claiming their own rights. The relevance of these rights shows that without the guarantee of this specie of human rights, the civil liberties which always attract the attention of all persons including the NGOs might suffer some set backs. Social rights are benefits or services provided to the needy which are not only recognized by domestic legal documents but also, across the international plane have acquired a unique position as part of the norms of jus co gen. The basic and founding document of international human rights law is the universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948. This document establishes the fundamental vision and principles of the new human rights regime by recognizing the interdependence of indivisibility of all human rights norms.

Bilateral Donors and a Human Rights-Based Approach to

7790 руб.
This thesis argues that a human rights-based approach to development cooperation (HRBA-DC) can contribute to the implementation of the international dimension of the right to development. The argument is supported by a case study that looks at the role of the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) in relation to human rights and the health sector in Uganda. The human rights approach of the UK’s Department of International Development (DFID) is also considered.The thesis provides contextual background about Uganda and considers cosmopolitanism as a theoretical foundation for a HRBA-DC. It argues that this approach requires that the relevant policies of donors be built upon a number of human rights principles, such as equality, non-discrimination, transparency, participation and accountability. When donors’ policies relate to health, it suggests that they should also reflect key elements of the right to the highest attainable standard of health, such as freedoms, entitlements, availability, accessibility, quality, and international assistance and cooperation.Using a human rights-based methodology, the thesis examines Sida’s policies and, to a lesser extent, DFID’s.

International Human Rights Organizations Reports

Human rights constitute fundamental needs of human beings’ survival. The existence of human rights organizations is a step in the right direction to ensure these rights are protected from violation, enhanced, and enshrined in each state’s constitutions. The International Human Rights bodies and Local chapters of Human Rights Organizations in different states should promote advocacies of these rights in enhancing co-existence among the citizens themselves, vis-a-vis the citizens and the state. When this inter – relation is built in the practice of these rights, then the impacts of it thereof can be analyzed and compared. Basing on the divine nature of any state in the field of International Relations and Diplomacy, it is therefore basic that the responsibility of state can be measurable to the level at which it exercises the practice of human rights. On the basis of the core role of a state to human rights practice, the impacts of International Human Rights Organizations’ reports can either portray the understanding of a state on the ‘coin scale’ towards its foreign relations. It is in this light that the researcher focused on Rwanda between 1994 and 2011.

Human Rights Scenario in India - An Overview

HUMAN RIGHTS are natural rights without which we cannot live. Human beings are rational. They by virtue of their being human possess certain basic and inalienable rights which are commonly known as human rights. Human rights are birthrights. They are inherent in human beings. Every one can enjoy these rights irrespective of caste, creed, religion, sex and nationality. These rights are not created by any legislation. Human rights are natural and universal They are inherent, innate and inalienable. Hence every human being is entitled to human rights. Globalization, affects the interests of individuals and their rights are violated by the transnational actors. Human rights are a set of claims and entitlements to human dignity, which the existing international regime assumes will be provided (or threatened) by the state. A more cosmopolitan and open international system should free individuals to pursue their rights, but large numbers of people seem to be suffering from both long¬standing state repression and new denials of rights linked to transnational forces.

The Tension Between Group Rights and Human Rights: A Multidisciplinary Approach

1625 руб.
The discussion of group rights, while always a part of the human rights discourse, has been gaining importance in the past decade. This discussion, which remains fundamental to a full realisation by the international community of its international human rights goals, requires careful analysis and empirical research. The present volume offers a great deal of material for both. It makes a strong case in favour of a multidisciplinary approach to human rights and explores the origins and social, anthropological and legal/political dimensions of human rights and internationally recognised group rights. It explores legal issues such as the reservations to international treaties and methodological questions, including the question of deliberative processes which allow seemingly absolute requirements of human rights to be reconciled with culturally sensitive norms prevailing within various groups. The discussion continues by looking at specific contexts, including the situations of women, school communities, ethnic and linguistic minorities, migrant communities and impoverished groups. The final part of the volume examines the 'state of play' of human rights and group rights in international law, in international relations and in the context of internationally sponsored development policies. Here the authors offer a meticulous and critical presentation of the legal regulation of human rights and group rights and point to numerous weaknesses which continue to exist and which call for additional work by legal thinkers and practitioners.

5499 руб.
The effective promotion, protection and fulfilment of economic, social and cultural (ESC) rights is an important but under-explored component of international human rights law, of which ESC rights form an essential part. They are fundamental to the dignity of every person. At the international level ESC rights are protected in several international instruments, the most comprehensive being the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (the Covenant) ratified by a majority of States. However, claims of violations of ESC rights are treated less seriously. This book subjects ESC rights protected in the Covenant to a deeper analysis in light of the practice of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights while taking into account other relevant sources of ESC rights at national, regional and international levels. It also analyses key issues relevant to ESC rights, with particular emphasis on various themes including State obligations; non-State actor's obligations; women's ESC rights; domestic protection of ESC rights; and State reservations to ESC rights. The book further makes a thorough examination of the rights to work, health, and education. By so doing, it demonstrates that ESC rights are justiciable and must not be marginalised. The book also brings together a collection of essential materials on ESC rights needed to understand and analyse the subject. Written by an international human rights scholar, this timely work will be of value to all those interested in human rights and international law.

Global Human Rights Institutions

6897 руб.
The range of global human rights institutions which have been created over the past half century is a remarkable achievement. Yet, their establishment and proliferation raises important questions. Why do states create such institutions and what do they want them to achieve? Does this differ from what the institutions themselves seek to accomplish? Are global human rights institutions effective remedies for violations of human dignity or temples for the performance of stale bureaucratic rituals? What happens to human rights when they are being framed in global institutions? This book is an introduction to global human rights institutions and to the challenges and paradoxes of institutionalizing human rights. Drawing on international legal scholarship and international relations literature, it examines UN institutions with a human rights mandate, the process of mainstreaming human rights, international courts which adjudicate human rights, and non–governmental human rights organizations. In mapping the ever more complex network of global human rights institutions it asks what these institutions are and what they are for. It critically assesses and appraises the ways in which global institutions bureaucratize human rights, and reflects on how this process is changing our perception of human rights.

International politics has become increasingly legalized over the past fifty years, restructuring the way states interact with each other, international institutions, and their own constituents. The international legalization of human rights now makes it possible for individuals to take human rights claims against their governments at international courts such as the European and Inter-American Courts of Human Rights. This book brings together theories from international law, human rights and international relations to explain the increasingly important phenomenon of states' compliance with human rights tribunals' rulings. It argues that this is an inherently domestic affair. It posits three overarching questions: why do states comply with human rights tribunals' rulings? How does the compliance process unfold and what are the domestic political considerations around compliance? What effect does compliance have on the protection of human rights? The book answers these through a combination of quantitative analyses and in-depth case studies from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Italy, Portugal, Russia and the United Kingdom.

Since recently, non-state actors are claiming a place in making and interpreting of international law. Particularly treaty bodies are playing an important role in shaping interpretation of human rights treaties. With the power to monitor State compliance to human rights undertakings, the treaty bodies adopt a number of instruments guiding implementation of the treaties. Concluding observations are outcome documents of the reporting procedure. The status of these documents is hardly discussed by literature and the interplay of the instruments with binding international laws remained blurred. This book tried to give insight on the status of concluding observations at the international as well as domestic legal systems. Particular focus is given to the practice of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. Concluding observations are understanding of authoritative interpreting body. Hence, the observations serve as subsidiary source of human rights law. They are not, of course, binding. However, the recommendations of the Committee are soft laws as they proved some level of normativity and states’ sense of compliance.This book is relevant to human rights practitioners and academicians.

It seeks to understand whether Malawi has complied with its human rights obligations in line with UN guidelines for reducing maternal mortality. In this monograph, Levi analyses the right to health in order to understand Malawi's compliance with its obligations to prevent maternal death. Since Levi has also taken into consideration the economic development of Malawi as a developing nation, many of his proposals can also be meaningful in many countries in Africa and beyond. It can also be used by health practitioners working in developing countries; students in human rights and health care studies as well as policy makers.

Human Rights and HIV Prevention

The HIV epidemic is the most serious health crisis the world faces today and there are an estimated 34 million people living with the virus. To halt a further spread, national governments and international organizations take action to reach universal access to treatment and to assure effective prevention-measures. These measures by governments are legitimated through the mandate of public health protection. However, those living with HIV and vulnerable groups with a higher risk of infection suffer from discrimination and stigmatization and face human rights violations under the smokescreen of public health. Moreover, human rights and public health interrelate and an effective response to HIV may only be achieved if the measures taken are corresponding to both elements, respecting their interdependency. This thesis focuses on the interrelation of human rights and HIV prevention and whether human rights violations may lead to a higher HIV-risk.

The international human rights system faces a lot of challenges with regard to the realization of the international human rights norms. It failed to achieve the main objectives of the international conventions. This failure is produced from various aspects: first some specific characteristics of the rights themselves as they lack clear standards, besides the unavailability of an international mechanism for enforcement. This calls for a new strategy to approach the implementation of human rights standards internationally. At the same time, the international development efforts that concentrate basically on achieving economic and financial progress of states and ignore the social and human dimensions of the economic strategies, were accused as the actor in the deterioration of the poor standard of human life. While both human rights activists and development practitioners are searching for a solution, they meet at a central point which is: “Human rights and human development are two sides of the same coin.”

The Role of the Individuals in International Law

2849 руб.
After the establishment of the United Nations and the subsequent outgrowth of international and regional institutions, it has become obvious that international law is no longer centered exclusively on the rights and duties of States. It has recognized the independent existence of a variety of international organizations and, in a number of situations, has imposed obligations on and granted rights to individuals. This work discusses the broadening of the traditional doctrine to include individuals as subjects of international law. Their role is reviewed through the concepts of their rights and duties in international law. Subsequently, the book considers the role of the individuals in the United Nations System, in particular, in its human rights protection mechanisms. As analyzed in the book, the establishment of the Human Rights Council raises new hopes as to making the UN human rights protection system more effective and also poses some open questions to be answered. The publication is aimed to serve as a useful small introduction for international public law specialists, human rights lawyers and all those who are interested in exploring this topical issue

Exploring Social Rights

Exploring Social Rights looks into the theoretical and practical implications of social rights. The book is organised in five parts. Part I considers theoretical aspects of social rights, and looks into their place within political and legal theory and within the human rights tradition; Part II looks at the status of social rights in international law, with reference to the challenge of globalisation and to the significance of specific regional regulation (such as the European System); Part III includes discussions of various legal systems which are of special interest in this area (Canada, South Africa, India and Israel); Part IV looks at the content of a few central social rights (such as the right to education and the right to health); and Part V discusses the relevance of social rights to distinct social groups (women and people with disabilities). The articles in the book, while using the category of social rights, also challenge the separation of rights into distinct categories and question the division of rights to 'civil' vs 'social' rights, from a perspective which considers all rights as 'social'. This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with human rights, the legal protection of social rights and social policy. 'Social rights are the stepchildren of the human rights family. Are they really 'rights'? Can courts enforce them? And does it make any difference when they try? This remarkable collection of essays by distinguished scholars offers important new responses to all the basic questions. Ranging across disciplinary and national boundaries and brimming with both theoretical and practical insights, the book is especially welcome in this moment of mounting inequalities and growing interest in the possibilities and perils of social rights.' William E Forbath, Lloyd M Bentsen Chair in Law and Professor of History, University of Texas at Austin 'At the auspicious moment of the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and more than half a century since the beginning of the Human Rights Revolution-a time characterized by the end of the cold war, globalization and privatization, comes this important compilation which critically revisits the international commitment to social rights, and reconceives its core distinguishing principles-from crosscutting comparative, theoretical and practical perspectives-illuminating our commitment to human security.'

The right to health has been widely recognized by States and international organizations as fundamental human rights without which sustainable human development can not be achieved. States are responsible for the progressive realization of the rights to health. This paper aims to examine the existing right to health recognized in the national legislation of Bangladesh along with the health system and policies. It reviews the right to health mentioned in the international laws, defines case studies and analyzes areas for improvement. This legal case study has been based on literature review from primary and secondary sources and experience gained through personal communication and group discussions. The paper concludes that while Bangladesh has made progress in some of the indicators of health, the realization of right to health has not gained momentum and needs to be recognized as a priority area. The recommendations of this legal case study will help the policy makers of Bangladesh and other developing countries to develop policies which will reduce the health inequality and increased access to health for the entire population.

The Education of Refugee Children

6390 руб.
Refugee protection has a controversial role within the modern human rights system, as well as within education policy-making and national welfare system. The creation of an international system of refugees’ rights has lead to the emergence of normative incongruities and disparities in the enjoyments of fundamental rights. This study investigates the enactment of the right to education for refugee children within national policy discourses and practices, adopting a comparative European perspective. It analyses two different levels of the policy-making process related to the right to education for refugee children (international and national), and it is undertaken in two stages. The first stage includes critical discourse analysis of international human rights documents, and British and Italian education policies. The second stage involves semi-structured interviews with international and national policy makers. Although limited in scope, the study intends to highlight the ‘aporetic nature’ of human rights, and the gap between promise and performance in the enactment of the right to education for refugee children.

International Children''s Rights Law versus Maasai Traditional Culture

5790 руб.
The implementation of International Children''s Rights Law (ICRL) in Africa has not borne much fruit due to conflict between universalism and cultural relativism of human rights. While ICRL supports universalism by arguing that there are fundamental human rights principles which apply to all humans regardless of their cultural, political/religious identities, African traditional cultures are parallel to cultural relativism in maintaining that local traditional cultures should determine the rights of individuals in a given society. Citing a case of the Maasai of Loitokitok District-Kenya, this book discusses its cultural understanding of a child and his/her customary rights of education, marriage, labor, sex, clitoridectomy and health, and their conflict with ICRL, in order to establish a cross-cultural approach of children''s rights that reconciles the conflict. In order to have authentic children''s rights which are accepted universally, the approach calls for human rights institutions to develop a wider understanding of rights which incorporates diverse concepts of the core accepted values from international and traditional cultures.

Rethinking International Anti-Corruption Conventions

6690 руб.
Corruption has existed over millennia as one of the worst and the most widespread forms of behavior which is incompatible with the ideals of justice, democracy and human rights. The close examination of the relationship between corruption and human rights reveals that corruption directly, indirectly and remotely violates human rights. In spite of the fact that these relationships exist between corruption and human rights, the existing regional and international anti-corruption conventions did not give due consideration for their relationship. However, on the contrary, guarantying human rights in general and ensuring non-discrimination and participation in particular are useful preventive tools for corruption. Hence, the problem of corruption and the violation of human rights need an integral approach. It is with this view that the human right to corruption-free service is put forward to give meaning to the integral approach. The right to corruption-free service is both a means for the realization of other human rights and for prevention of corruption. The book is especially useful for anti-corruption and human rights activists; and anyone else who advances the cause of humanity.
