Of value to human rights litigators and activists, this manual provides a step-by-step practical guide to handling lawsuits in the United States for human rights abuses committed in other countries. The authors fully cover the relevant statutory law and jurisprudence, especially the Alien Tort Claims Act and the Torture Victim Protection Act. They also discuss the thornier issues that often arise in such cases, including problems of jurisdiction and immunity, choice of law and sources of international law.
