The Paris Principles were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly and the Human Rights Commission in December 1993 and relate to the status and functioning of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) for the protection and promotion of human rights. Since their adoption, the Paris Principles have become the international standards applicable to these institutions.
This book offers a complete study of the Principles, which includes an appraisal of their establishment, evolution and potential for the future; a comprehensive commentary on each provision; and a practical guide to the interpretation of the Principles including the implications they have for the implementation of the competencies of NHRIs.
This is the first book to thoroughly analyse the Paris Principles and will be essential reading for a global audience of both practitioners working for NHRIs and the UN as well as international human rights scholars.
