International Human Rights is the definitive work on the subject area providing its reader with a comprehensive analysis of this wide and diverse subject area.

A successor to the widely acclaimed International Human Rights in Context, this book is written by Philip Alston and Ryan Goodman who are both world-leading human rights scholars. They have chosen a wide selection of materials from primary and secondary materials to demonstrate and illuminate key themes and carefully guide the reader through each extract with thoughtful and lucid commentary.

  • The authors are leading academics in the area of International Human Rights, providing the reader with an unparalleled level of authority and insight.
  • The lucid analysis of the key themes places the subject in its socio-political context and highlights the topics being debated today.
  • The carefully chosen diverse range of extracts from primary and secondary legislation, from case law and from academic writings lead the reader to the heart of the subject area.
  • Questions are posed throughout the book to encourage deeper reflection and critical enquiry.
