Product Description

 

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) represents the world`s commitment to universal ideals of human dignity. The OHCHR has been given a unique mandate by the international community to promote and protect all human rights. It is mandated to promote and protect the enjoyment and full realization, by all people, of all rights established in the Charter of the United Nations and in international human rights laws and treaties. In this series, a complete overview of the work of the OHCHR is being presented.

The collection is divided into several different volumes, providing wide-ranging insights in the work of the OHCHR, thus offering a valuable legal tool for academic collections.

This first volume of the section containing selected basic documents and background materials consists of three parts, in which general documents are being presented. We focus on the International Bill of Rights and the core human rights treaties as well as on some other important universal human rights instruments and on the protection of human rights in situations of war.
