This innovative and timely Handbook brings together the work of 25 leading human rights scholars from all over the world to consider a broad range of human rights topics. The book discusses a wide range of contemporary themes, for example jurisdictional issues, such as human rights in the private sphere and extra-territorial obligations. It also deals with global and regional human rights systems, intersections with other areas of international law and practice, such as international criminal law and globalisation, and specific human rights topics including terrorism and indigenous peoples. Providing an excellent grounding for scholars seeking to understand the major topics within the discipline, this topical book is accessible to the novice human rights scholar, yet of great interest to the most seasoned human rights researcher. It will strongly appeal to law academics as well as students and practitioners of human rights.

`This Handbook will quickly become the first stop for all interested in human rights, whether they are academics, activists or civil servants. It provides a clear and accessible guide to international human rights law, but never sacrifices sophistication for simplicity. The authors cover a great range of human rights issues in an imaginative way and alert the reader to the major debates and controversies. This is a valuable contribution to the international protection of human rights.' -- Hilary Charlesworth, The Australian National University, Australia `The advance of global human rights is a kind of miracle. This book furthers the enterprise with a collection of cutting edge chapters on the legal issues of the second half of the 20th century. Those who want to stay ahead in this adventure in the 21st century will need to know the challenges that appear on every page.' -- The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG, Former Judge of the High Court of Australia 1996-2009
