A paradigm change is occurring, in the course of which human beings are becoming the primary international legal persons. In numerous areas of public international law, substantive rights and obligations of individuals arguably flow directly from international law. The novel legal status of humans in international law is now captured with a concept borrowed from constitutional doctrine: international rights of the person, as opposed to international law protecting persons. Combining doctrinal analysis with current practice, this book is the most comprehensive contemporary analysis of the legal status of the individual. Beyond Human Rights, previously published in German and now revised by the author in this English edition, not only deals with the individual in international humanitarian law, international criminal law and international investment law, but it also covers fields such as consular law, environmental law, protection of individuals against acts of violence and natural disasters, refugee law and labour law.

From a review of the German edition: 'There is much to admire in Anne Peters' book, so much that after reading Jenseits der Menschenrechte, it is difficult to imagine what else can be done in this area of the law.' Roland Portmann, Vlkerrechtsblog (

From a review of the German edition: 'Anne Peters' most recent opus Beyond Human Rights: The Legal Status of the Individual in International Law constitutes an outstanding and groundbreaking piece of scholarship that radically re-positions the individual within the grid system of international law and consistently supplements her previous work on global constitutionalism.' Raphael Oidtmann, Vlkerrechtsblog (

From a review of the German edition: 'Anne Peters' most recent book is an equally important and topical contribution to the international law discourse ... It provides both an in-depth analysis of the rights and obligations of the individual under contemporary international law and a great deal of food for thought regarding what to make of this analysis from the point of view of international law doctrine. Both in its effort of stocktaking and of providing a vision where the development is heading, Jenseits der Menschenrechte marks a significant step in the growing scholarship on the legal status of the individual in international law and, thus, truly deserves to be called a milestone book for the discipline. It is to be strongly hoped that it will soon also be available in English.' Andreas Th. Mller, European Journal of International Law

From a review of the German edition: 'This book is both an intelligent and important one. It lucidly and convincingly explains how international law has come to not only tolerate but also consciously acknowledge individual rights.' Steffen Augsberg, translated from Portal fr Politikwissenschaft (

From a review of the German edition: 'Individual rights exist in international law; that is the core message of this book and imperative premise of any critical discussion on the widening gap between reality ... and human rights rhetoric. Doubtless, another merit of this book is its warning against a mere formal and discursive human rights recourse (hence the title). This publication is a must-read for anyone who knows German.' Agostino Carrino, translated from Rivista semestrale di scienza costituzionale e teoria del diritto

From a review of the German edition: 'This comprehensive, well-researched and diverse book dovetails with Anne Peters' previous eminent publications. Not only does this book empirically examine numerous legal subfields but it also strengthens their philosophical and doctrinal foundations. Thus it makes a contribution both in terms of analysing the status quo and further developing the role of individual rights in international law.' Katrin Fenrich, Journal of International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict
