Universal Minority Rights

A Commentary on the Jurisprudence of International New Courts and Treaty Bodies

Marc Weller, Director of the European Centre for

Minority Issues and an Assistant Director of Studies at the Centre of International Studies, University of Cambridge, Fellow of the Lauterpacht Research Centre for International Law and of Hughes Hall, Cambridge.

The development of international standards for the protection of minorities has been slow and fragmented. In the absence of a comprehensive and universal binding set of rules, the development of minority protection has been left to regional agreements and judicial interpretation of wider human rights agreements. Universal Minority Rights brings together, for the first time, the full set of all regional and international jurisprudence from courts and treaty bodies concerned with issues of minority rights.Through an exhaustive, comparative analysis of principles and substantive rules, the commentary provides an invaluable reference point for the development of minority protection.

`a thoughtful and comprehensive treatise [that] illustrates profound and careful scholarship.'

-- Immigration & Nationality Law & Practice

`Stunningly good, both in ambition and execution.This is a remarkable work...this is, to my knowledge, the only post-Act work that tackles the field in so comprehensively systematic a way.'

-- A.T. H. Smith, Professor and Dean of Law, Cambridge, Criminal Law Review

Up-to-date, comprehensive, and affordable guide to preparing and presenting asylum and immigration-related human rights appeals Structured chronologically so as to provide expert guidance to every step of the appeals process and the related areas of certification, removal, and detention Covers all relevant practice, procedure, and substantive asylum and human rights law in a user-friendly format, designed to enable best practice within the strict and short time limits of the new regime

The Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants etc) Act 2004 has substantially revised the immigration appeal system, with the previous two-tier system being fused into the new Asylum and Immigration Tribunal.Where a party wishes to challenge a decision of the Tribunal, they must show it has made an `error of law' in order to access a new review procedure. Subsequent appeal rights to the Court of Appeal are dependent on the exhaustion of these new remedies.The complexity of the legislation, and the strict new time limits, can present practitioners with real practical challenges. Written by two experienced practitioners, Asylum and Human Rights Appeals Handbook is an up-to-date and comprehensive reference tool for all lawyers and advisers who prepare appeal cases and appear before the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal.

`the most authoritative text available on international refugee law.'

-- Refugee Reports

Millions of people are today forced to flee their homes as a result of conflict, systematic discrimination, or other forms of persecution.The core instruments on which they must rely to secure international protection are the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol.This book, the leading text in the field, examines key challenges to the Convention such as the status of refugees, applications for asylum, and the international and domestic standards of protection. The situation of refugees is one of the most pressing and urgent problems facing the international community and refugee law has grown in recent years to a subject of global importance. In this long-awaited third edition each chapter has been thoroughly revised and updated and every issue, old and new, has received fresh analysis. Features include: analysis of internally displaced persons; so-called preventive protection; access to refugees; safety of refugees and relief personnel; the situation of refugee women and children; a detailed examination of the role of the UNHCR and the Palestinian situation; and an assessment of the protection possibilities (or lack of them) in the European Convention on Human Rights.

Poverty and Fundamental Rights

The Justification and Enforcement of Socio-economic Rights


David Bilchitz, Part-time Lecturer, University of the Witwatersrand; Full-time Employee of Ross Kriel Attorneys, specialising in the law relating to the public sector

This book addresses the pressing issue of severe poverty and inequality, and asks why violations of socio-economic rights are treated with less urgency than violations of civil and political rights, such as the right to freedom of speech or voting. It provides a sustained argument for placing renewed focus on socio-economic rights as a method of ensuring that governments address extreme poverty. It combines both theoretical and practical perspectives, political philosophy, and constitutional law and policy.

The Rights of Minorities

A Commentary on the European Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities NE

Edited by Marc Weller, Director of the European Centre for Minority Issues and an Assistant Director of Studies at the Centre of International Studies, University of Cambridge, Fellow of the Lauterpacht Research Centre for International Law and of Hughes Hall, Cambridge.

This volume provides the first expert commentary on the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, the principal international document establishing minority rights in a legally binding way. Many minority rights such as those to political participation, non-assimilation, and the use of native languages are not incorporated in other major Human Rights agreements.The Convention is therefore often taken to be the leading standard in this area of regulation.This commentary offers a detailed article-by-article analysis of the Convention, drawing upon its negotiating history and implementation practice, in addition to examining the pronouncements of the Advisory Committee, which is the implementation body attached to the treaty.

Human Rights Obligations of Non-State Actors

Andrew Clapham, Professor of Public International Law, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva The threats to human rights posed by non-state actors are of increasing concern. Multinational corporations and the activities of international organizations, such as the United Nations, NATO, and the European Union, are increasingly examined with recourse to a human rights lens. This book presents an approach to human rights that goes beyond the traditional focus on states and argues that non-state actors have human rights obligations. It also addresses some of the ways in which non-state actors can be held accountable for their actions. The book discusses how developments in the fields of international responsibility and international criminal law have implications for building a framework for the human rights obligations of non-state actors in international law. These international developments have drawn on the changing ways in which human rights are implemented in national law. A selection of jurisdictions, including the United States, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, are examined with regard to their application of human rights law to non-state actors. The book challenges some fundamental assumptions about human rights law. It suggests that the time has come for a radical rethink regarding who has responsibilities and for what.

Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in Action


Edited by Mashood A. Baderin, Reader in International Human Rights Law, University of the West of England, and Robert McCorquodale, Professor of International Law and Human Rights, University of Nottingham, and

On December 16, 1966 the United Nations adopted the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.This was the first global treaty that established legal obligations on states to protect a range of important economic, social and cultural rights. 40 years later the vast majority of States have ratified this treaty. Despite this history, there remains considerable debate, both within the literature and within the international community generally, about the concept and application of economic, social and cultural rights.This collection gives a coherent analysis of many of the key issues, both in concept and in application, relevant to economic, social and cultural rights. The authors of the chapters, many of whom are leading scholars in their fields with significant experience in practice, examine how the obligations to protect these rights have been applied today, including their application to the Security Council and to non-state actors, as well as in the context of development and dispossession. They provide important universal and regional comparative perspectives on the development and implementation of these rights, and consider some of the contemporary issues relating to these rights, such as trade, health and social security.

Minority Rights in Asia

A Comparative Legal Analysis



A Collection



Joshua Castellino, Lecturer, Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway, and Elvira Domínguez Redondo, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Irish Research Council for Humanities & Social Sciences, Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway

The absence of a regional system of human rights protection for Asia, and the ambivalence of some Asian states towards existing human rights regimes often results in a lack of awareness of the plight of minorities in these states. The existing human rights literature on Asia tends to focus on the debate of cultural relativism. On the other hand, minority rights literature largely ignores Asia. This book tackles this lacuna by undertaking an analysis of the minority rights legal regimes in India, China, Malaysia and Singapore, while also locating this discussion in the context of a wider debate on human rights in Asia. India and China, the world's most populous states, face similar problems vis-àvis minorities, yet tackle these using starkly different techniques. Malaysia and Singapore, vocal in their articulation of `Asian Values', have taken opposing stances over minority rights. Malaysia has sought to establish Malay hegemony using minority rights tools in favor of the majority, while Singapore deliberately adopted a doctrine of meritocracy, nonetheless emphasizing ethnic fault-lines within its population. Together the four states reflect not only the complex layers of culture and identity within Asian states, but also the vastly different political systems and contrasting conceptions of the role of law in the continent. Through its examination of minority rights theory and its application in specific cases, this book provides a useful comparative model for the assessment of other states within Asia, thereby taking an important first step towards understanding the situation of minorities within the entire continent.

`Few of this book's contributors want to engage in polemics, and few--to their credit--ever seem completely comfortable with their own conclusions.'

-- The New York Times Book Review

`This superior collection of essays by 17 leading scholars provides a timely, penetrating investigation into this morally challenging but important topic.... It is a pleasure to read an edited book in which the chapters speak to each other. This is a well-crafted study in political ethics.'


Torture is perhaps the most unequivocally banned practice in the world today. Yet recent photographs from Abu Ghraib substantiated claims that the United States and some of its allies are using methods of questioning relating to the war on terrorism that could be described as torture or, at the very least, as inhuman and degrading. In terror's wake, the use of such methods, at least under some conditions, has gained some prominent defenders, notably from within the White House. In this revised edition, Torture: A Collection brings together leading lawyers, political theorists, social scientists, and public intellectuals to debate the advisability of maintaining the absolute ban and to reflect on what it says about our societies if we do-- or do not-- adhere to it in all circumstances. New to this edition are essays by Charles Krauthammer and Andrew Sullivan on the adoption in 2005 of the McCain Amendment, which explicitly bars the use of torture and other cruel methods of interrogation. The noted contributors include Ariel Dorfman, Elaine Scarry, Alan Dershowitz, Judge Richard Posner, Michael Walzer, Jean Bethke Elshtain, and other lawyers from both the United States and abroad.

Americans in Waiting


Labour Rights as Human Rights

Edited by Philip Alston, Professor of Law at New York University Law School

Are efforts to protect workers' rights compatible with the forces of globalization? How can minimum standards designed to protect labor rights be implemented in a world in which national labor law is more and more at the mercy of international forces beyond its control? The contributors to this volume argue that international agreements and institutions are of central importance if labor rights are to be protected in a globalized economy, exploring some of the options that are open to governments, civil society, and the labor movement in the years ahead.

The Lost Story of Immigration and Citizenship in the United States

Hiroshi Motomura, University of North Carolina Law School

Freedom of Speech

Second Edition


Eric Barendt, Goodman Professor of Media Law, University College London

`Hiroshi Motomura's portrait of immigration history in the United States is as poignant as it is precise. Americans in Waiting emphasizes the need to treat lawful immigrants more inclusively, and welcome them as future citizens who will help revitalize the American Dream for future generations, as they have done throughout history.'

-- U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy

In Americans in Waiting, Motomura discovers in our national past a simple yet powerful approach to immigration and citizenship. Rewriting the conventional story, Motomura uncovers how for over 150 years, many immigrants were immediately put on track to U.S. citizenship. They were entitled to overseas diplomatic protection and eligible to homestead land on the western frontier. Citizens-to-be were even allowed to vote. In sum, immigration was assumed to be a transition to citizenship, and immigrants were future citizens, Americans in waiting. Once central to law and policy, this view has all but vanished. Beginning in the early twentieth century, the United States began to treat its immigrants in one of two ways: as signatories to a contract that sets the terms of their stay in this country, or as affiliates, who can earn rights only as they become, over time, enmeshed in the nations life. Immigration is now seen too often as a problem to be solved, rather than a pillar of our nation's strength. A panoramic history of the past 200 years of immigration and citizenship in the United States, Americans in Waiting offers a clear lesson: only by recovering this lost of history of immigration can we ensure that both current and future citizens share in the sense of belonging that is crucial to full participation in American life.

Non-State Actors and Human Rights

Edited by Philip Alston, Professor of Law at New York University Law School

Can transnational corporations ignore human rights as long as governments don't hold them accountable? If the UN is put in charge of a territory, is it bound by human rights law? Under traditional approaches to human rights, non-State actors cannot be parties to the relevant treaties and so they are only bound to the extent that obligations accepted by States can be applied to them by governments.This situation threatens to make a mockery of much of the international system of accountability for human rights violations.The contributors to this volume examine the different approaches that might be taken in order to ensure some degree of accountability. Making space in the legal regime to take account of the role of non-State actors is one of the biggest and most critical challenges facing international law today.

Immigration, Asylum and Human Rights

Nicholas Blake QC, Barrister, Matrix Chambers, and Raza Husain, Barrister, Matrix Chambers

Human rights law has always been of particular importance to immigrants and asylum seekers. Immigration, Asylum and Human Rights reviews the Strasbourg case law relating to the rights of aliens and their families, and examines the workings of the Human Rights Act in the domestic immigration context. A number of core problems for immigration practitioners are considered: how far are human rights under the Act extra-territorial? When is a deportation order a proportionate interference with the right to respect for family life? What is the jurisdiction of the courts to review executive policy relating to immigration? What is the impact of the anti-terrorism legislation enacted in response to the September 11 attacks?

Human Rights and Development:

Towards Mutual Reinforcement

Edited by Philip Alston, Professor of Law at New York University Law School, and Faculty Director of its Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, and Mary Robinson, Formerly President of the Republic of Ireland (1990-97) and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002)

Only in the past 15 years or so, with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the realization that freedom and economic well-being are empirically linked, have the professional communities dealing with development and human rights issues begun to communicate effectively. However, too much of the dialogue has been confined to an abstract or theoretical level.The eminent contributors to this volume address highly specific yet crucial aspects of the human rights and development interface, including the economics of social rights; land rights and women's empowerment; child labor and access to education; reform of legal and judicial systems; the human rights role of the private sector; and building human rights into development planning, especially the Poverty Reduction Strategy process.

Remedies in International Human Rights Law

Second Edition

National Minority Rights in Europe

Tove H. Malloy, Senior Research Associate and Head of EU Department, ECMI and Head of EU Department, permanent member of the Danish Foreign Service

Separatism is a highly topical and controversial legal and political issue.The conflicts in the Balkans of the 1990s have revived the unresolved issue of national minority self-determination in international law and also, in European politics, the issues of how to deal with sub-state nationalisms and group recognition, and how to enable the political inclusion of national minorities.This book reviews the impact of the discourse of national minority rights on the European inter-governmental approach to national minority accommodation after 1989, and proposes an alternative framework for national minority accommodation based upon multiple loyalties, critical citizenship, and discursive justice.

American Bioethics

Crossing Human Rights and Health Law Boundaries

George J. Annas, Edward R. Utley Professor and Chair, Health Law Department, Boston University School of Public Health, USA

This book crosses artificial borders between bioethics and health law, and between American bioethics and international human rights. American isolationism is not tenable in the wake of scientific triumphs like decoding the human genome and civilizational tragedies like international terrorism. Using our imaginations and bringing two universal codes together, the human genome and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, American bioethics can be reborn and help make the world a better, healthier, place to live.

Indigenous Peoples, Postcolonialism, and International Law

Luis Rodríguez-Piñero, Senior Research Fellow, Indigenous Law and Policy Program,The University of Arizona

The debate surrounding the rights of indigenous peoples is one of the most dynamic and controversial fields in contemporary politics.This book analyzes the work of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) as a driving force in developing the status of indigenous peoples in international law.

Human Rights and International Trade

Edited by Thomas Cottier, Managing Director, World Trade Institute, Bern; Professor of European and International Economic Law, University of Bern, Switzerland, Joost Pauwelyn, Associate Professor of Law, Duke University School of Law, and Elisabeth Bürgi, attorney at law, researcher,World Trade Institute, Bern and Institute of European and International Economic Law, University of Bern, Switzerland

Economic globalization and respect for human rights are both highly topical issues. In theory, more trade should increase economic welfare and protection of human rights should ensure individual dignity. Recently, however, tension has arisen between these two areas. Does the World Trade Organization prevent countries from providing essential medicines to their people? Is it fair to accord the benefits of trade subject to a clean human rights record? This book examines the theoretical framework of the interaction between the disciplines of international trade law and human rights.The interaction is the explored through seven case studies, ranging from freedom of expression and anti-trust rules, to the fight against trade in conflict diamonds and the UN's new convention on tobacco control.

China Modernizes

Threat to the West or Model for the Rest?

Randall Peerenboom, Professor of Law, UCLA School of Law


Provides a controversial, first-hand account of modern China and its complexities Challenges readers to re-assess their view of China by presenting original evidence across the political, economic, and legal spectrum Sheds new light on China's record on civil, political, and human rights by evaluating China's actions within a comparative context Addresses contemporary policy debates from within China, as well as from a global perspective

Two sharply contrasting views of China exist today. On the one hand a rising superpower predicted to have the largest economy in the world by mid century, on the other hand a brutal, anachronistic and authoritarian regime, a threat to geo-stability and to the economies of the industrial world. So which China is the real China? Randall Peerenboom addresses this question by exploring China's economy, political and legal system, and most controversially, its record on civil, political and personal rights in the context of the developing world. Avoiding polemic and relying on empirical evidence, he compares China's performance not with first world countries such as the US and UK but with other middle income countries and highlights the often hypocritical stance of an international community which demands standards from others that it does not match at home. He also critically evaluates the benefits of globalization and democratization and the normative values of the West set against Beijing's determination to retain its cultural and political integrity. This book seeks to bridge the gap in understanding about China and to create a firmer foundation for mutual trust, while recognizing that there are inevitable risks in a shift in global power of this magnitude that will require hard headed pragmatism at times where interests collide.

Human Rights Law Review seeks to promote awareness, knowledge and discussion on matters of human rights law and policy. While academic in focus, the Review also aims to be of interest to the wider human rights community, including those in governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental spheres, concerned with law, policy and fieldwork. The Review publishes critical articles that consider human rights in their various contexts, from global to national levels, book reviews, and a section dedicated to analysis of recent jurisprudence and practice of the UN and regional human rights systems.
