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

15 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 273 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

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

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 177 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."--
