Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of international documents relevant to the international human rights litigation in U.S. courts. The book examines the difficult jurisprudential issues raised by the Alien Tort Statute (ATS), placing the statute in the constitutional framework of federalism and separation of powers. It introduces the factors that determine who can sue and who can be sued in an ATS case and then addresses the standards by which the courts determine what violations fall within the reach of the statute.

Keywords: Alien Tort Statute (ATS); international human rights litigation
