SUMMARY

The last fifty years have witnessed the development of a global system of human rights promotion and protection. Canada has played a significant role in its growth and will likely continue to do so. Yet until now, there has not existed a comprehensive textbook on international human rights law written for Canadians.International Human Rights Lawseeks to meet this need in a way that will encourage greater understanding of, and use of, international human rights law by lawyers, students and others. Part Oneintroduces the international law of human rights, including the related areas of international labour, refugee, humanitarian, and criminal law. The history and sources of international human rights are described and the leading treaties discussed. Part Twoaddresses the reception of international human rights norms in Canadian domestic law. After introducing Canadian reception law and the leading Canadian human rights laws, this part embarks on an ambitious survey of the means by which theCharterand other laws implement--or fail to implement--Canadian human rights obligations. Part Threeis devoted to the promotion and protection of human rights in Canadian, international, and (to a lesser extent) foreign law. This part emphasises remedial measures available to victims of human rights abuses, whether suffered in Canada or abroad. Finally, theconclusionconsiders contemporary trends and issues in human rights law, including terrorism, humanitarian intervention, transitional justice, and domestic reception. The book also includes a foreword by the incoming UN Human Rights Commissioner, the Hon. Madam Justice Louise Arbour, and useful appendices on Canadian human rights treaty obligations.Freeman, Mark is the author of 'International Human Rights Law' with ISBN 9781552210949 and ISBN 1552210944.
