Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides a brief overview of the book The Effectiveness of Domestic Human Rights NGOs: A Comparative Study and its chapters. The book contributes towards the enforcement of human rights law, to create ideas that might be practically useful to human rights DNGOs, and to begin the process of filling the gap in human rights literature on human rights DNGOs. Within the realm of human rights scholarship, much discussion has occurred in recent times about the important role played by Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in the enforcement of human rights laws. Human rights lawyers, however, having been trained primarily in the exposition of doctrine in public and international law, have generally approached this topic as a sort of ?supplement? to their discussion of human rights doctrine. This chapter sets an overview of the concepts of the enforcement of human rights law and of human rights NGO.

Keywords: DNGOs; human rights law; human rights scholarship; international law; Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
