The public profile of human rights law has risen dramatically since the early 1990s. Many states have adopted human rights bills or acceded to regional systems in Europe, Africa and the Americas. What role then is there for the UN? This revised edition of a book first published i...n 1991 provides a comprehensive analysis of the UN's work in the field of human rights. The essays critically examine the functions, procedures and performance of each of the major UN organs dealing with the subject, including the Security Council and the International Court of Justice as well as the more specialized bodies such as the Commission on Human Rights and the Committee on the Rights of the Child.
