Human rights belong to all of us. They apply regardless of where we are from, what we believe, or how we choose to live our lives. Despite this, the laws and treaties underpinning the obligations of the state to uphold human rights, and the mechanisms for addressing grievances, can be complex. The Principles of Human Rights series provides a critical analysis of the core concepts and foundations upon which these crucial laws are based.
Combining nuanced insight with a structured, accessible style, the series will examine key human rights considerations including education, health and housing, as well as more theoretical aspects such as access to justice and compliance in international human rights law. Entries will be written by both eminent and emerging experts at the top of the field, offering authoritative and compelling must-read overviews for scholars, postgraduate students, lawyers and policy makers.
