This book condenses the guidance of the Human Rights Committee and accompanying legal scholarship into an easily accessible reference handbook for understanding the nature and scope of rights set forth in the ICCPR.
The ICCPR offers the most widely accepted definition of civil and political rights at the international level, and as such this Practical Guide serves as an indispensable tool for legal practitioners and others who are dedicated to the promotion and protection of civil and political rights throughout the globe. It is also a useful source of information for introductory courses in international human rights law.
Though geared to legal professionals and academics, the Guide's aim is to inform and educate a variety of audiences including international organisations, non-governmental organisations, human rights advocates and defenders, and governments of signatory states. The authors are all attorneys associated with the Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative of the Section of International Law and Practice of the American Bar Association.
