This comprehensive Research Handbook offers an in-depth examination of the most significant factors affecting compliance with international human rights law, which has emerged as one of the key problems in the efforts to promote effective protection of human rights. In particular, it examines the relationships between regional human rights courts and domestic actors and judiciaries.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the Research Handbook explores the legal and political considerations that shape compliance, using a combination of both international and comparative law analysis in their assessment of regional human rights regimes. Chapters written by leading scholars and practitioners from around the globe cover a wide range of jurisdictions from Europe, Latin America and Africa and their interactions with regional human rights courts. The Research Handbook also discusses the limits of, and possible alternatives to, compliance as a framework for analysis, offering a fuller understanding of the effectiveness of international human rights law.

Scholars, students, and practitioners of public international law, international human rights law and comparative law will find this Research Handbook an invaluable resource. It will also benefit diplomats and lawyers working with international organisations who deal with human rights issues on a regular basis.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook provides a fresh look at non-compliance in international human rights law. It is indispensable for all those who want to understand the problems underlying non-compliance, the dynamics of the different actors involved, and the range of options available for tackling non-implementation. The book’s key features include its stringent structure, its well-elaborated comparative approach, and its thought-provoking ideas for combatting neglectful state attitudes. This book sets a new standard for the state of the art in compliance research.’
– Helen Keller, University of Zurich, Switzerland
