The future of international human rights

Burns H. Weston, Stephen P. Marks, editors and contributors

The writings in this book offer a searching analysis of what the Universal Declaration has and has not achieved, why it remains so vitally present at the heart of international law, and -- most importantly -- what meaningful steps can be taken to secure its stature as a formidable deterrent to greed, brutality, and the abuse of power. This book analyses and assesses emerging domains of international human rights law and practice, the development of which is part of the legacy of the Universal Declaration, and explores the viable pathways to the future that the declaration opens up.
