At the beginning of the nineties, there was an expectation within the human rights community that the next decade would be a period of consolidation for the international human rights regime. This did not happen. In fact, the human rights regime underwent dramatic changes in response to new circumstances. We have tried to highlight both the achievements and the challenges ahead in this Manual, the result of a joint project under the auspices of HumanitarianNet, a Thematic Network on Humanitarian Development Studies leaded by the University of Deusto (Bilbao, the Basque Country, Spain), and the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC, Venice, Italy).

This title was first published in 2003. The series of volumes prepared by UNESCO for teaching human rights at higher education level comes to a conclusion with the publication of this volume. "Human Rights: International Protection, Monitoring, Enforcement" takes an institutional approach to the international protection of human rights, examining first the United Nations system, which may be seen as universal, and then analysing regional systems of protection. A useful source of information on the protection of human rights, the volume can also be employed as a practical guide to the use of existing procedures in the defence of human rights.

Human rights now occupy a key place in international law and international relations. Nearly 100 states have accepted the United Nations Covenants of 1966; regional systems of human rights are in operation in Europe, Africa and Latin America; and organisations such as the ILO and Unesco have their own instruments and procedures. Human Rights in the World explains what the current guarantees of human rights are and how they work. Substantially rewritten and updated to take into account the ending of the Cold War, this new edition includes such issues as the War Crimes Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the role of the UN Commissioner for Human Rights. Authoritative, comprehensive and up-to-date, the book is an invaluable source of reference for students, scholars and practitioners.
