Adjudicating International Human Rights honours Professor Sandy Ghandhi on his retirement from law teaching. It does so through a series of targeted essays which probe the framework and adequacy of international human rights adjudication.

Eminent international law scholars (such as Sir Nigel Rodley, Dame Rosalyn Higgins and Professor Malcolm Evans), along with emerging writers in the field, take Professor Ghandhi’s body of work – focussed on human rights protection through legal institutions – as a starting point for a variety of analytical essays.

Adjudicating International Human Rights includes chapters devoted to human rights protection in a number of different institutional contexts, ranging from the ICJ and the Human Rights Committee to truth commissions and NAFTA arbitration tribunals.
