Now in its third edition, this book is the authoritative text on one of the world's most important human rights treaties, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The Covenant is of universal relevance. Adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1966 and in force from 1976, it commits the signatories and parties to respect the civil and political freedoms and rights of individuals. Monitored by the UN Human Rights Committee, the Covenant ratified by the majority of UN member states. The book meticulously extracts and analyzes the jurisprudence over nearly forty years of the UN Human Rights Committee, on each of the various ICCPR rights, including the right to life, the right to freedom from torture, the right of freedom of religion, the right of freedom of expression, and the right to privacy, as well as admissibility criteria under the First Optional Protocol. Key miscellaneous issues, such as reservations, derogations, and denunciations, are also thoroughly assessed. Comprehensively indexed and cross-referenced, this book offers elegant and straight-forward access to the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee and other UN human rights treaty bodies. Presented in a clear and illuminating manner, it will be of use to the judiciary, human rights practitioners, human rights activists, government institutions, academics, and students alike.

Economic, social and cultural rights are finally coming of age. This book brings together all essential documents, materials, and case law relating to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) - one of the most important human rights instruments in international law - and its Optional Protocol. This book presents extracts from primary materials alongside critical commentary and analysis, placing the documents in their wider context and situating economic, social, and cultural rights within the broader human rights framework.There is increasing interest internationally, regionally, and in domestic legal systems in the protection of economic, social, and cultural rights. The Optional Protocol of 2008 allows for individual communications to be made to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights after its entry into force in 2013. At the regional level, socio-economic rights are well embedded in human rights systems in Europe, Africa and the Americas. At the national level, constitutions and courts have increasingly regarded socio-economic rights as justiciable, narrowing the traditional divide with civil and political rights. This book contextualises these developments in the context of the ICESCR. It provides detailed analysis of the ICESCR structured around its articles, drawing on national as well as international case law and materials, and containing all of the key primary materials in its extensive appendices. This book is indispensible for the judiciary, human rights practitioners, government legal advisers and agencies, national human rights institutions, international organisations, regional human rights bodies, NGOs and human rights activists, academics, and students alike.

HauptbeschreibungRechtliche Regelungen zu sexueller Orientierung gehen weltweit erheblich auseinander. Wnhrend etwa in einigen Staaten gleichgeschlechtliche Paare verschiedengeschlechtlichen Paaren rechtlich gleichgestellt sind, wird in anderen Staaten einverstnndliche Homosexualitnt zwischen Erwachsenen verfolgt und teilweise mit schwerer Strafe belegt. Vor diesem Hintergrund analysiert diese Arbeit umfassend die vAlker- und europarechtlichen Vorgaben fr den Schutz sexueller Orientierung. Dabei werden alle relevanten Bereiche des VAlker- und Europarechts in den Blick genommen, insbesondere Menschenrechte, internationales Flchtlingsrecht, VAlkerstrafrecht und das Dienstrecht internationaler Organisationen.Zu jedem dieser Bereiche werden Kernprinzipien herausgearbeitet und die rechtlichen Entwicklungen des jeweiligen Bereichs analysiert und bewertet. Die zentralen rechtlichen Problemfelder der Einzelrechtsgebiete werden im Anschluss rechtsgebietbergreifend analysiert, wobei auf Parallelen, Interdependenzen und Spannungsfelder eingegangen wird."
