    Abstract

    This text seeks to provide those concerned with human rights law with material to reveal the extent of human rights protection, the procedures for bringing a complaint, and the way in which the protection of human rights is incorporated into judicial procedures. The materials included are: the texts of global and regional statements setting out fundamental human rights; the rules of procedure of various international human rights tribunals; international treaties and agreements on a range of specific aspects of the legal process reflecting how rights are (or should be) protected throughout the administration of justice. The key human rights documents are introduced with an overview of the development and operation of human rights protection, and subsequent texts carry introductory notes. The volume therefore provides access to materials which set out the cornerstone protection of human rights by the United Nations and regional organizations in Europe, America and Africa, through common guidelines and protection established in relation to the conduct of officials; the treatment of prisoners; the use of the death penalty; the protection of children; the interests of victims; the prohibition of torture; the punishment of genocide and international legal co-operation such as extradition and mutual assistance. The statutes and rules of procedure for the current international tribunals in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda are included.
