The leading textbook on International Human Rights Law is now better than ever. The content has been fully updated and now provides more detailed coverage of substantive human rights, along with new sections on climate change and international human rights law theory, making this the most comprehensive book in the field. It has a new, more student-friendly text design and has retained the features which made the first edition so engaging and accessible, including the concise and critical style, and questions and case studies within each chapter, with suggestions for further reading now clearly sign posted in a separate section. Written by De Schutter, whose extensive experience working in the field and teaching the subject in both the US and EU gives him a unique perspective and valuable insight into the requirements of lecturers and students. This is an essential tool for all students of International Human Rights Law.
