International legal protection of human rights in armed conflict by United Nations( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International human rights law and international humanitarian law share the goal of preserving the dignity and humanity of all. Over the years, the General Assembly, the Commission on Human Rights and, more recently, the Human Rights Council have considered that, in armed conflict, parties to the conflict have legally binding obligations concerning the rights of persons affected by the conflict. Although different in scope, international human rights law and international humanitarian law offer a series of protections to persons in situations of armed conflict, whether civilians, persons who are no longer participating directly in hostilities or active participants in the conflict. This publication provides a thorough legal analysis and guidance to State authorities, human rights and humanitarian actors and others on the application of international human rights law and international humanitarian law for the protection of persons."--

Rule-of-law tools for post-conflict states : national consultations on transitional justice by United Nations( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For transitional justice efforts to be effective, they must be grounded in international human rights standards. Above all, they must be human rights-based: consistently focusing on the rights and needs of victims and their families. A human rights-based approach to transitional justice demands that programs should be designed in a context of in-depth consultation with affected communities. International human rights law requires national consultations to be undertaken. Consultation can particularly benefit the design of specific aspects of transitional justice programs, such as determining the best formal role for victims to play, highlighting the experience of otherwise neglected victim groups. In addition, national consultations can revitalize stalled or excessively slow-moving peace processes or make it difficult for peace negotiators and other decision makers to back out of their commitments to transitional justice. This publication identifies the main applicable human rights instruments and discusses the focus and the form of national consultations.--Publisher's description

Rule-of-law tools for post-conflict states : reparations programmes by United Nations( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to the myriad violations and abuses of fundamental rights that take place particularly during conflicts and under authoritarian regimes, a variety of measures have been developed. This publication has reviewed some of the relevant international law instruments on reparations, and has raised some of the most difficult challenges that reparations programs have faced in different parts off the world. It is a practical tool to provide guidance on implementing reparations initiatives and focuses on how to establish (outof-court) fair and effective reparations programs in close association with other justice initiatives and with the participation of various stakeholders to help redress cases of gross and serious violations of human rights in the wake of conflict or authoritarian rule.--Publisher's description
Human rights translated : a business reference guide by Castan Centre for Human Rights Law( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication explains universally recognized human rights in a way that makes sense to business. It illustrates, through the use of case studies and suggested practical actions, how human rights are relevant in a corporate context and how human rights issues can be managed. It is also a tool for companies wanting to engage in activities in support of human rights.--Publisher's description
