This new and entirely revised 3rd edition (originally entitled International Human Rights Law and the Charter of Rights) expands on developments in international human rights law since the publication of the previous edition. Co-authored by Prof. William A. Schabas and Prof. Stephane Beaulac, this seminal work explores international human rights law and its relationship with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

It is a valuable teaching tool for students of international and human rights law, foreign relations and policy. The book traces the historical development of human rights law both in Canada and internationally, explores the theoretical basis for the use of international human rights law, reviews the sources of that law, and examines recent case law on human rights decided under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Finally, the book offers commentary on how International human rights law invites progressive judges to use its new and evolving norms to develop additional dimensions to Canadian jurisprudence. It includes an extensive bibliography and a useful list of international human rights and humanitarian law conventions to which Canada is a party as well as a detailed analytical index and detailed Table of Contents.
