Summary

This chapter deals with the legal recognition of new human rights in public international law. Human rights activists, non-governmental organisations and scholars worldwide put forward suggestions and demands to widen the realm of protection through human rights beyond – occasionally far beyond – the currently acknowledged areas. The contributions to this volume bear witness to the imagination and creativity of those who seek to improve the living conditions of human beings by enlarging the protective umbrella of human rights. In addition, international tribunals and treaty bodies regularly ‘discover’ new human rights within those already expressly recognised in international human rights treaties. Thus, it seems fitting to look into the birth process of a new human right until it attains ‘full recognition’ as part of public international law.
