Book description

This unique book examines the role and impact of human rights norms in international courts other than human rights courts. It covers a whole range of courts and jurisdictions, looking at the practice of prominent international courts, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, as well as various fora of economic adjudication, including the World Trade Organisation, regional integration organisations in Europe and Africa, and investment arbitration. The book systematically explores the role of human rights norms at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, thereby providing an insight into the future evolution of environmental law towards judicial enforcement at the international level. Within each jurisdiction under study, the respective authors, who all are experts within their fields, address the role of different categories of human rights, as well as the range of available modes of operation of human rights norms.


'The contemporary adjudication of human rights law by non-specialist international courts and tribunals raises complex doctrinal, systemic and normative questions. This valuable book offers the reader a welcome and comprehensive analytical map to evaluate both the legal possibilities and trade-offs inherent in this adjudicatory phenomenon.'

Jürgen Kurtz - European University Institute, Florence

'A most welcome book which highlights the reach of human rights into the purview of a wide range of international courts and tribunals. The entry points are multiple: due process rights, substantive applicable law or means of interpretation. 'Other' international courts and tribunals have become important partners to human rights courts and treaty bodies, as the book aptly demonstrates.'

Laurence Boisson de Chazournes - University of Geneva
