This collection offers the reader an exposition and critical analysis of certain human rights, such as the right to information and to personality. Some human rights issues of legal and also of political significance, including the protection of human rights pending the settlement of related political issues, are also examined. There is an emphasis on novel or debatable aspects which have hitherto been insufficiently explored, such as the scope of civil servants' freedom of speech, the expulsion of settlers from occupied territories, and whether the test of state responsibility for violations of human rights is objective or subjective. Most of the topics are examined in the context of the European Convention on Human Rights and, where relevant, reference is made to US Supreme Court case law and international law.
