Description

The series of volumes prepared by UNESCO for teaching human rights at higher education level comes to a successful conclusion with the publication of this volume. Human Rights: International Protection, Monitoring, Enforcement takes an institutional approach to the international protection of human rights, examining first the United Nations system, which may be seen as universal, and then analysing regional systems of protection. An indispensable source of information on the protection of human rights, the volume can also be employed as a practical guide to the use of existing procedures in the defence of human rights.
