Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled International Human Rights Litigation in U.S. Courts contains the table of contents, the foreword, the acknowledgements, an introduction, the statutory framework, a note about citations and updates, and about the authors. Human rights litigation strengthens the human rights movement in the United States and worldwide. Its impact extends beyond plaintiffs, defendants, and the human rights struggles in their home countries. Activists around the world are seeking means to hold accountable those who violate international human rights norms. In the United States, civil litigation helps push human rights issues to the forefront, both when the government chooses to downplay or overlook such abuses and when the U.S. government itself engages in conduct that violates international human rights norms.

Keywords: civil litigation; international human rights
