Book description

Human rights are considered one of the big ideas of the early twenty-first century. This book presents in an authoritative and readable form the variety of platforms on which human rights law is practiced today, reflecting also on the dynamic inter-relationships that exist between these various levels. The collection has a critical edge. The chapters engage with how human rights law has developed in its various subfields, what (if anything) has been achieved and at what cost, in terms of expected or produced unexpected side-effects. The authors pass judgment about the consistency, efficacy and success of human rights law (set against the standards of the field itself or other external goals). Written by world-class academics, this Companion will be essential reading for students and scholars of human rights law.

Reviews

'… the book presents excellent and intellectually stimulating articles that look at human rights from a range of different perspectives. The chapters are authoritative and easily readable with concise arguments unburdened by complex legal language. This is especially important for students and general readers aiming to gain some measure of understanding in the subject, without delving into its more complex underpinnings … The Cambridge Companion to Human Rights Law is an extremely well-written and intellectually stimulating book for anyone interested in human rights law.'
