International human rights law is among the broadest, most-dynamic and controversial topics in legal study. In this book, Javaid Rehman offers a comprehensive and practical examination of the workings of human rights protection and presents a considered legal analysis of such sensitive issues as non-discrimination, rights of minorities, indigenous peoples, and the rights of women and children.

He also explores areas such as enforced disappearances; torture; and terrorism all highly topical and contentious issues which continue to dominate much of today's social, political and legal debate.
