All institutions have human rights responsibilities. Some have been set up with this function and others have had human rights principles thrust upon them.
This book explores how different institutions, from state entities, national human rights commissions and the judiciary, to the United Nations agencies and international courts, have engaged in human rights protection.
There is analysis of their evolution in this role and the methods that they use. Northern Ireland and Bosnia and Herzegovina are illustrative of what can happen to human rights when societies are in conflict. Other chapters consider the development of international criminal law, the trouble with treaties and the increasing pressure on corporations to demonstrate social responsibility.
There is plenty of evidence that human rights protection is as important as ever and this book looks at what is required to achieve this effectively.
