Synopsis

Defining Civil and Political Rights The Jurisprudence of the United Nations Human Rights Committee by Dr Alex Conte, Dr Richard Burchill

Defining Civil and Political Rights provides a comprehensive analysis and commentary on the decisions - technically known as views - of the United Nations Human Rights Committee, for use by human rights lawyers throughout the world. Each of the substantive rights and freedoms set out in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights is considered in detail, by analysis of final reviews and comments of the Human Rights Committee. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to take account of recent jurisprudence on the Human Rights Committee. New material has been added based upon substantive areas of the committee's jurisprudence.

Reviews

Reviews of the First Edition: 'For those seeking an up to date assessment of the Human Rights Committee's findings it is ideal. It is user friendly, gets to the point and for those quickly seeking to find out if there is a remedy available under the Covenant will be indispensable.
Communications Law

'The book more than fulfils [its] aim...this publication is a coherent examination of the developing case law of the Human Rights Committee organised under main topics in civil and political rights. It is an invaluable tool for teaching and practicing [sic] in the field...This book would be an invaluable tool for domestic Judges universally...'
The Law and Politics Book Review

'...it is a book that provides details for both the layman and the expert in the field of human rights and entails a must-read for all those dealing or interested in human right issues.'
USI Journal

'...provides important and detailed information regarding the developing jurisprudence of the Committee in interpreting the instrument of its own creation .'
Australian Journal of Political Science
