This book provides a comprehensive analysis and commentary on the decisions - technically known as views - of the United Nations Human Rights Committee, which is an independent and quasi-judicial international body established under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Each of the substantive rights and freedoms set out in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights is considered in detail, by analysis of final reviews and comments of the Human Rights Committee. Practitioners will benefit from this review and consideration of determinations of ICCPR rights - those rights being reflected throughout various international and domestic human rights instruments.
This will hold particular appeal for practitioners in States party to the International Covenant, but the relevance of the text is not limited to specific consideration of the ICCPR procedure. The willingness of other judicial bodies to make reference to the International Covenant is evident throughout systems such as the European Convention on Human Rights, the Inter-American Human Rights System and Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
