Series: Elgar original reference

‘Constance de la Vega’s Dictionary of International Human Rights Law is a marvellous new human rights resource. It provides concise definitions and explanations of key human rights phrases, including specific recognised and emerging rights, relevant concepts, institutions and instruments. Human rights law has not grown in a vacuum, so some related concepts, such as from international criminal law and the law of armed conflict, are wisely included. This book will be an important addition to the libraries of human rights scholars, practitioners and advocates throughout the world.’
– Sarah Joseph, Monash University, Australia
