Now in its third edition, this book is the authoritative text on one of the world's most important human rights treaties, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The Covenant is of universal relevance. Adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1966 and in force from 1976, it commits the signatories and parties to respect the civil and political freedoms and rights of individuals. Monitored by the UN Human Rights Committee, the Covenant ratified by the majority of UN member states. The book meticulously extracts and analyzes the jurisprudence over nearly forty years of the UN Human Rights Committee, on each of the various ICCPR rights, including the right to life, the right to freedom from torture, the right of freedom of religion, the right of freedom of expression, and the right to privacy, as well as admissibility criteria under the First Optional Protocol. Key miscellaneous issues, such as reservations, derogations, and denunciations, are also thoroughly assessed. Comprehensively indexed and cross-referenced, this book offers elegant and straight-forward access to the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee and other UN human rights treaty bodies. Presented in a clear and illuminating manner, it will be of use to the judiciary, human rights practitioners, human rights activists, government institutions, academics, and students alike.

Economic, social and cultural rights are finally coming of age. This book brings together all essential documents, materials, and case law relating to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) - one of the most important human rights instruments in international law - and its Optional Protocol. This book presents extracts from primary materials alongside critical commentary and analysis, placing the documents in their wider context and situating economic, social, and cultural rights within the broader human rights framework.There is increasing interest internationally, regionally, and in domestic legal systems in the protection of economic, social, and cultural rights. The Optional Protocol of 2008 allows for individual communications to be made to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights after its entry into force in 2013. At the regional level, socio-economic rights are well embedded in human rights systems in Europe, Africa and the Americas. At the national level, constitutions and courts have increasingly regarded socio-economic rights as justiciable, narrowing the traditional divide with civil and political rights. This book contextualises these developments in the context of the ICESCR. It provides detailed analysis of the ICESCR structured around its articles, drawing on national as well as international case law and materials, and containing all of the key primary materials in its extensive appendices. This book is indispensible for the judiciary, human rights practitioners, government legal advisers and agencies, national human rights institutions, international organisations, regional human rights bodies, NGOs and human rights activists, academics, and students alike.

Die Frage der Menschenrechte ist heute ein unverzichtbarer Bestandteil der internationalen und nationalen Politik. Deshalb ist es wichtig, ihre historische Dimension zu kennen.Erstmals im 17./18. Jahrhundert wurden in England und Nordamerika Burgerrechte formuliert; mit der Declaration des droits de lhomme et du citoyen 1789 begann die bis in die Gegenwart reichende Geschichte der Menschen- und Burgerrechte.Markante Einschnitte in der Entwicklung bildeten die europaischen Revolutionen von 1848 und 1918, die Charta der Vereinten Nationen von 1945 sowie die Allgemeine Erklarung der Menschenrechte von 1948. Unter Berufung auf eigene Traditionen wurden in der Folgezeit in Afrika und Asien sowie im politischen Islam autochthone Vorstellungen gegen das traditionelle, europaisch gepragte Konzept von Menschen- und Burgerrechten entwickelt.Im vorliegenden Buch wird die Geschichte der Menschen- und Burgerrechte - orientiert an den wichtigsten Texten und mit besonderer Berucksichtigung Deutschlands - nachgezeichnet.Ein Ausblick gilt den Menschenrechten am Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts.

HauptbeschreibungRechtliche Regelungen zu sexueller Orientierung gehen weltweit erheblich auseinander. Wnhrend etwa in einigen Staaten gleichgeschlechtliche Paare verschiedengeschlechtlichen Paaren rechtlich gleichgestellt sind, wird in anderen Staaten einverstnndliche Homosexualitnt zwischen Erwachsenen verfolgt und teilweise mit schwerer Strafe belegt. Vor diesem Hintergrund analysiert diese Arbeit umfassend die vAlker- und europarechtlichen Vorgaben fr den Schutz sexueller Orientierung. Dabei werden alle relevanten Bereiche des VAlker- und Europarechts in den Blick genommen, insbesondere Menschenrechte, internationales Flchtlingsrecht, VAlkerstrafrecht und das Dienstrecht internationaler Organisationen.Zu jedem dieser Bereiche werden Kernprinzipien herausgearbeitet und die rechtlichen Entwicklungen des jeweiligen Bereichs analysiert und bewertet. Die zentralen rechtlichen Problemfelder der Einzelrechtsgebiete werden im Anschluss rechtsgebietbergreifend analysiert, wobei auf Parallelen, Interdependenzen und Spannungsfelder eingegangen wird."

Die internationale Dimension der Religionsfreiheit erfahrt seit einigen Jahren verstarkte Beachtung. Im Vordergrund steht dabei die Rechtsprechung des Europaischen Gerichtshofs fur Menschenrechte (EGMR), die spatestens seit den Entscheidungen zu Kruzifixen in italienischen Klassenzimmern nicht nur das Interesse des Fachpublikums findet, sondern auch die breitere Offentlichkeit bewegt. Die Rechtsprechung des Europaischen Gerichtshofs fur Menschenrechte zur Religionsfreiheit ist in den vergangenen Jahren Gegenstand mehrerer Untersuchungen gewesen. Fur den Internationalen Pakt uber burgerliche und politische Rechte (IPbpR) und dem von ihm errichteten Menschenrechtsausschuss fehlt es bislang an einer vergleichbaren Untersuchung der Entscheidungspraxis zur Religionsfreiheit. Bianca Petzhold schliesst diese Lucke, indem sie neben einer systematischen Erschliessung der Spruchpraxis Querbezuge zur Praxis der UN-Sonderberichterstatter zur Religionsfreiheit und zur Rechtsp rechung des EGMR herstellt.

In a regional, national and global response to terrorism, the emphasis necessarily lies on preventing the next terrorist act. Yet, with prevention comes prediction: the need to identify and detain those considered likely to engage in a terrorist act in the future. The detention of ‘suspected terrorists’ is intended, therefore, to thwart a potential terrorist act recognising that retrospective action is of no consequence given the severity of terrorist crime. Although preventative steps against those reasonably suspected to have an intention to commit a terrorist act is sound counter-terrorism policy, a law allowing arbitrary arrest and detention is not. A State must carefully enact anti-terrorism laws to ensure that preventative detention does not wrongly accuse and grossly slander an innocent person, nor allow a terrorist to evade detection. This book examines whether the preventative detention of suspected terrorists in State counter-terrorism policy is consistent with the prohibitions on arbitrary arrest and detention in international human rights law. This examination is based on the ‘principle of proportionality’; a principle underlying the prohibition on arbitrary arrest as universally protected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and given effect to internationally in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and regionally in regional instruments including the European Convention on Human Rights. The book is written from a global counter-terrorism perspective, drawing particularly on examples of preventative detention from the UK, US and Australia, as well as jurisprudence from the ECHR.

Diese Sammlung von Schriften aus der Zeit von 1970 bis 1990 des brasilianischen Pädagogen Paulo Freire (1921-1997) gibt einen Einblick in die Grundlagen und Prinzipien seiner Bildungsarbeit auf der Basis der Pädagogik der Befreiung. In den ausgewählten Texten werden nicht nur pädagogische Probleme und inhaltlich-methodische Fragen der Bildungsarbeit thematisiert. Sie enthalten ebenso Analysen und Bewertungen von Politik, Kultur, Religion, Ethik und Veränderungsmöglichkeiten von Gesellschaft - eine Erweiterung, die sich gegen eine Vorstellung wendet, Pädagogik sei von Gesellschaft und Politik losgelöst zu behandeln. Scharfsinnig hat Freire u.a. die verheerenden Folgen des Neoliberalismus für Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert und zum widerständigen Denken und Handeln ermuntert. Eine Auswahl repräsentativer alter und neuer Texte von Paulo Freire: Wer sie zur Hand nimmt, entdeckt rasch, dass uns dieser brasilianische Pädagoge nicht nur für die Theorie und Praxis unserer Erziehungsarbeit, sondern für unser Überleben Entscheidendes zu sagen hat.
