The jurisprudence of human rights law : a comparative interpretive approach( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and Finnish and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together nine qualified human rights experts into a novel undertaking. Through examining topics like the death penalty, indigenous land rights, euthanasia and assisted suicide, non-discrimination in the field of social security, Holocaust denial and freedom of expression, and confidentiality in the context of HIV/AIDS, this book aims not only at contributing through scholarly essays to the debate on these issues but even more to the methodology of comparative analysis in the field of human rights."--Jacket
The impact of human rights law on general international law( Book )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides the first comprehensive examination of the impact of international human rights law on general international law. It considers areas including the structure of international obligations, the formation of customary international law, treaty law, immunities, state responsibility, and diplomatic protection. The authors trace the extent to which concepts emanating from international human rights law are being incorporated by the guardians of traditional international law: the International Court of Justice and the International Law Commission." "The book contains work carried out by the Committee on International Law and Practice of the International Law Association (ILA) over a period of four years, including the Committee's Final Report on the Impact of International Human Rights Law on General International Law and in-depth contributions by Committee members on key areas of international law."--Jacket
Cultural human rights by Francesco Francioni( Book )

20 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is the relationship between culture and human rights? Can the idea of cultural rights, which are predicated on the distinctiveness and exclusivity of a community's beliefs and traditions, be compatible with the concept of human rights, which are universal and 'inherent' to all human beings? If we accept such compatibility, what is the actual content of cultural rights? Who are their beneficiaries: individuals, or peoples or groups as collective entities? And what precise obligations do cultural rights pose upon states or other actors in international law, or for the international community as a whole? International instruments on the protection of human rights do not provide self-evident answers to these questions. This book seeks to analyse these dilemmas and to assess the impact that they are having on international law and the development of a coherent category of cultural human rights."--BOOK JACKET

Judges as guardians of constitutionalism and human rights( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are many challenges that national and supranational judges have to face when fulfilling their roles as guardians of constitutionalism and human rights. This book brings together academics and judges from different jurisdictions in an endeavour to uncover the intricacies of the judicial function. The contributors discuss several points that each represent contemporary challenges to judging: analysis of judicial balancing of conflicting considerations; the nature of courts' legitimacy and its alleged dependence on public support; the role of judges in upholding constitutional values in the times of transition to democracy, surveillance and the fight against terrorism; and the role of international judges in guaranteeing globally recognized fundamental rights and freedoms. This book will be of interest to human rights scholars focusing on the issues of judicial oversight, as well as constitutional law scholars interested in comparative perspectives on the role of judges in different contexts. It will also be useful to national constitutional court judges, and law clerks aiming to familiarise themselves with judicial practices within other jurisdictions."--
