    schema:description ""A thorough examination of the institutions governing human rights on the world stage, including procedures practiced by the UN Human Rights Council and other major international organizations. Written from a global perspective, The Institutions of Human Rights is a contributed volume that examines international human rights institutions, procedures, and select issues. Closely examining international human rights organizations including the International Labour Organization, the International Criminal Court, and the European Court of Human Rights, this text places a particular focus on how institutions function, arguing that to truly understand human rights' affairs one must also understand the politics and motivations at the core of these institutions. In addition to providing a comprehensive examination of key institutions, this volume also sheds light on the procedures at play when implementing new rights and discusses weighty issues such as the protection of refugee and labour laws. Featuring chapters written by high-profile scholars form Canada, the United States, and abroad, The Institutions of Human Rights breaks down important learning objectives, features key take-away messages, and uses discussion questions to promote critical thinking and engagement."--"@en ;
