Book description

Human rights law is a complex but compelling subject that fascinates students but also confuses them. This innovative textbook explores human rights law from a theoretical and practical perspective. Case studies and interviews with specialist practitioners, NGO activists and policy-makers show how theory is applied in real life. The up-to-date coverage includes introductions to important emerging fields such as globalisation, poverty and advocacy. Student learning is supported by questions to stimulate seminar discussion and further reading sections that encourage independent study. The authors' combined expertise, engaging writing style and ability to clarify not simplify ensures that this important new book will become required reading for all students of human rights law.


'Human rights law is an inherently active, political and practical body of law; to understand it and its operation requires familiarity not only with the formal rules, standards and systems but also with the informal, the political and the practical. By combining precise description and analysis of the law with insightful and varied contributions from practice (broadly defined), Oette and Bantekas provide a rounded account of international human rights law and its practice that provokes as well as it informs.'

Fiona de Londras - Durham University

'The authors' ability to not only clarify but also analyse issues from a theoretical and practical perspective makes this book an essential reading not only for students of human rights but for all those interested in the theory and practice of international human rights.'
