The human rights treaties are at the core of the international system for the promotion and protection of human rights. Their power to translate rights into remedies, however, requires greater access to the system by victims of human rights violations. This volume is about access and empowerment. It will facilitate the ability of victims to complain about violations of their rights to an international body, and to have their complaints measured against clear standards. Although this system of enforcement remains open only to those whose rights have been violated by states that have permitted complaints, the complaints procedures of the UN treaty system apply to one-quarter of the world's population. With this volume Professor Bayefsky makes the international complaints procedure arising from the UN human rights treaty system available to individuals, lawyers, non-governmental organizations, and human rights advocates in many parts of the world. She begins by identifying the common features of the four complaints procedures under each of the four treaties. Each treaty is then examined in greater detail.;Consideration is finally given to questions of overlap and the choice of a forum. The annexes provide the practical tools for filing a complaint.
