This collection is intended as a thematic textbook on the institutions and procedures devoted to the national implementation of human rights and to the international monitoring of state performance.;The coverage extends to most of the monitoring instances available at inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations: complaints, fact-finding and investigative procedures, state reporting obligations, good offices actions, dialogue functions, human rights education, dissemination of human rights information, letter campaigns, and technical co-operation. The book is intended for students of international human rights law, but it can also serve as a guide for both officials and activists involved in the realization of human rights.
