Human Rights and the Criminal Justice System is an advanced text that addresses the conjunction of these two areas. We now live in a world which thinks through the legislative implications of criminal justice with one eye on human rights.

This book brings together the relevant legal and the criminological material in order to critically review the relationship between the developing body of human rights theory and practice, and the criminal justice system.

Taking up a thorough analysis of this relationship, Human Rights and the Criminal Justice System examines existing legal structures, court practices, and the developing literature in criminology, law and political science.

It will be of considerable interest to those with academic concerns in this area; as well as providing an accessible, yet sophisticated, resource for relevant upper level undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
