Chapter Summary

This book comprises of ten chapters and these chapters are broadly classified into three segments from a reader's point of view. The first segment provides an introductory effort to the canvass of international human rights law, starting from the philosophical and conceptual level to practical and implementation frameworks. The second segment focuses specifically on issues of specific relevance in the contemporary scenario, namely women's rights; human rights education and globalization of human rights. The third segment concentrates on challenges and priorities before the implementation mechanisms and enforcement instruments. The book demonstrates a great degree of reliance on various authorial viewpoints as the beginning point in the fundamental enquiry on what constitutes international human rights law. Starting from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the author traces out the role and contribution of United Nations Commission on Human Rights, a sub-committee of Economic and Social Council of the General Assembly.

Keywords: enforcement instruments; globalization; human rights education; international human rights law; United Nations Commission on Human Rights; Universal Declaration of Human Rights; women's rights
