9780199285419: The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights: Cases, Materials, and Commentary

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights [ICCPR] is the most important human rights treaty in the world: it is of universal relevance, being open for ratification to all States.

Now fully updated and in its second edition, this book provides a comprehensive collation and analysis of the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee, the monitoring body established under the ICCPR. The substantive articles of the ICCPR, as well as the admissibility provisions of the First Optional Protocol, are analysed, incorporating excerpts from decisions arising from individual communications under the First Optional Protocol, as well as relevant General Comments and Concluding Observations on States parties. Decisions under other United Nations treaties, such as the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, are also extracted to highlight complementary UN human rights jurisprudence.

Review:

`Review from previous edition Review from previous edition '... a seminal work which will be of enormous interest to the human rights community...'' Commonwealth Lawyer

`'... a very useful first stop in finding the basic jurisprudence on the protection of civil and political rights under the treaties adopted under the auspices of the United Nations.'' Urfan Khaliq, Tolley's Communications Law

`... the publication makes a most creditable contribution to systematising and making accessible the work of the Human Rights Committee in the exercise of its various functions ... With its timely collation of the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee, it stands alone in the human rights literature.' Australian Year Book of International Law

`The book, all 985 pages of it, is an excellent source of reference. No other work has encompassed as much material and case law so far...the wide range of sources is impressive...Of great value is the subject indexthis index is exceptionally good, detailed and clear...the compilation of such incredible amounts of material is a gigantic achievement. The inclusion of good-quality indexes and information tables makes the information readily available and is one of the major assets of the work...The volume is a most-needed and welcome contribution for scholars and practitioners alike. It fulfils its aim of bestowing the legal community with an excellent source of information on international human rights law and will certainly aid in the advancement of human rights protection.'
