The UN Commission on Human Rights began establishing the Special Procedures in the late 1960s. Since then, the UN mechanisms have developed and become veritable tools of human rights protection and monitoring. This book endeavours to capture the evolution of the human rights activity carried out by the Special Procedures and evaluate their importance and impact. It provides a thorough and up-to-date insight of the institutional history of the Special Procedures, analyzes their legal dimension, puts forward a conceptual definition of them, elucidates their evolution and assesses their effectiveness. This book makes an important and unique contribution to the study of UN human rights monitoring mechanisms by providing a systematic analysis and conceptualization of the Special Procedures. Also by singling out indicators to evaluate the impact of the Procedures' practice, this study brings innovative elements to the academic debate on the measurement of human rights bodies' activity.

Diplomacy of Conscience

A small group founded Amnesty International in 1961 to translate human rights principles into action. Diplomacy of Conscience provides a rich account of how the organization pioneered a combination of popular pressure and expert knowledge to advance global human rights. To an extent unmatched by predecessors and copied by successors, Amnesty International has employed worldwide publicity campaigns based on fact-finding and moral pressure to urge governments to improve human rights practices. Less well known is Amnesty International's significant impact on international law. It has helped forge the international community's repertoire of official responses to the most severe human rights violations, supplementing moral concern with expertise and conceptual vision. Diplomacy of Conscience traces Amnesty International's efforts to strengthen both popular human rights awareness and international law against torture, disappearances, and political killings. Drawing on primary interviews and archival research, Ann Marie Clark posits that Amnesty International's strenuously cultivated objectivity gave the group political independence and allowed it to be critical of all governments violating human rights. Its capacity to investigate abuses and interpret them according to international standards helped it foster consistency and coherence in new human rights law. Generalizing from this study, Clark builds a theory of the autonomous role of nongovernmental actors in the emergence of international norms pitting moral imperatives against state sovereignty. Her work is of substantial historical and theoretical relevance to those interested in how norms take shape in international society, as well as anyone studying the increasing visibility of nongovernmental organizations on the international scene.

By using human rights as a guidepost, social workers can help create social welfare policies that better serve societal needs. However, in applying human rights to contemporary situations, social workers often encounter challenges that require thinking outside the box. Bringing together provocative essays from a diverse range of authors, Elisabeth Reichert demonstrates how approaching social work from a human rights perspective can profoundly affect legislation, resource management, and enforcement of policies. Topics include the reconciliation of cultural relativism with universal human rights; the debate over whether human rights truly promote economic and social development or simply allow economically developed societies to exploit underdeveloped countries; the role of gender in the practice of human rights; the tendency to promote political and civil rights over economic and social rights; and the surprising connection between the social work and legal professions.

Making Human Rights Real

Here in a nutshell readers may find a description of the most important characteristics of human rights, and a clear and concise discussion of the problem of making human rights real and not just hypothetical. Building on definitions of human rights used by the United Nations and other international bodies, the author describes the main characteristics of the system of human rights (universality, interdependence, differences between types of rights, absolute or limited rights, the subjects of rights - individuals or groups, the link between rights and the judicial system and between rights and democracy). He then discusses some of the instruments we can use to promote respect for human rights, the means by which we might make these rights real for a greater portion of humanity. Along the way, he analyzes some of the related controversies regarding sovereignty, international intervention, and globalization and questions of cultural imperialism as they bear upon human rights. Do we have a right to impose rights - or to defend ourselves from such intervention? This systematic discussion presents a complex and difficult topic in an understandable framework accessible to the general public, and will stand as a useful foundation for readings of more specialized scientific, legal and philosophical works. Where most human rights books for the nonspecialist focus on specific instances of rights abuses, this work provides a more general approach focused on the logic in the system of human rights. * Filip Spagnoli obtained his PhD at the University of Brussels. He has written numerous OpEd articles in leading Belgian newspapers and specialized articles in philosophical periodicals, and two books, Homo Democraticus, On the Universal Desirability but the Not So Universal Possibility of Democracy and Human Rights (2003); and Democratic Imperialism, A Practical Guide, 2004). Employed by the research and statistics directorate of the Belgian Central Bank, Spagnoli is a guest speaker at conferences and universities and has participated in European Commission study visits to Eastern European countries with the aim of delivering statistical expertise and helping these countries to achieve membership of the European Union.



Human Rights Litigation Promoting International Law in U S Courts

Human Rights Litigation Promoting International Law in U S  Courts Author Ying-Jen Lo

Lo studies how human rights organizations and individual activists have sought to influence American courts on death penalty law and refugee policies. In doing so, she studies whether neutral legal rules have affected judges' decision-making. She concludes that judicial attitude matters most in litigation since judges enjoy autonomous authority in adjudicating cases. Twin goals should dominate human rights activists' agenda: to socialize U.S. judges to international human rights law through tools such as case briefs, amicus statements, and seminars and to extend this socialization to the executive and legislative departments, which, directly or indirectly, influence the courts.



International Law and Drone Strikes in Pakistan

While conventional warfare has an established body of legal precedence, the legality of drone strikes by the United States in Pakistan and elsewhere remains ambiguous. This book explores the legal and political issues surrounding the use of drones in Pakistan. Drawing from international treaty law, customary international law, and statistical data on the impact of the strikes, Sikander Ahmed Shah asks whether drone strikes by the United States in Pakistan are in compliance with international humanitarian law. The book questions how international law views the giving of consent between States for military action, and explores what this means for the interaction between sovereignty and consent. The book goes on to look at the socio-political realities of drone strikes in Pakistan, scrutinizing the impact of drone strikes on both Pakistani politics and US-Pakistan relationships. Topics include the Pakistan army-government relationship, the evolution of international institutions as a result of drone strikes, and the geopolitical dynamics affecting the region. As a detailed and critical examination of the legal and political challenges presented by drone strikes, this book will be essential to scholars and students of the law of armed conflict, security studies, political science and international relations.

The author argues that although the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the role the United Nations plays in promoting global awareness of human rights has had a positive influence in Africa, their institutional, financial and political impediments undercut the ability of a global system to address adequately the crisis in human rights violations occurring in Africa today. Using case studies from South Africa and Uganda, past difficulties in addressing human rights problems are analyzed and recommendations made for future methodologies including the creation of an African Court of Human and Peoples' Rights.Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint.
