Chapter Summary

There are three principal control modalities applied in international human rights law. The most common system is that State Parties submit periodical reports and have them examined by the treaty body in a dialogue with the government. The treaty committee concludes its examination by drawing up its main concerns with regard to the implementation of the treaty obligations in the country in question. These conclusions are communicated to the government together with recommendations for initiatives that can improve the realization of the critical areas. Human rights law recognizes both States Parties and individuals as legal subjects and they are endowed with rights at different levels of the system. The demarcation line between situations where human rights law as opposed to humanitarian law is applied is not a sharp one. Certain human rights obligations continue to apply in situations of armed international conflict.
