Towards Implementing Universal Human Rights
This unique collection has been compiled to mark the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the activities of the Human Rights Committee established under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It reflects various aspects of the Committee and its activities and is comprised of articles contributed exclusively by its members, past and present.
The Festschrift is divided into five chapters. Chapter I comprises four articles dealing with the UN system of human rights protection in general and the role and work of the Human Rights Committee in particular. Chapter II contains two articles on the historical aspects of the Committee, both in retrospect and prospect. Chapter III covers three articles, each dealing with the Committee’s different activities of a general nature, whereas Chapter IV includes six articles, each analyzing Committee activities of a specific nature. Chapter V is composed of only one article, a case study of domestic implementation of the Covenant. This is a must-have collection for government officials, academics, NGO personnel and students interested in studying human rights in a worldwide perspective.
