Tips for Researching International Human Rights Case Law

The DipLawMatic Dialogues blog posted an article yesterday with Tips for Researching International Human Rights Case Law:

"In the universe of international human rights documentation, case law has a special place. Human rights case law is human rights in action. It confronts general norms with concrete facts and requires a decision about whether or not the general norm has been violated. Human rights case law brings general norms to life. The point of this post is to offer tips for researching human rights case law in each of the systems of protection that are in operation in the world today."

There are tips for finding human rights jurisprudence involving the United Nations system of treaties, as well as case law from the European Court of Human Rights (Council of Europe), the European Court of Justice (European Union), the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights.

DipLawMatic Dialogues is published by the Foreign, Comparative, and International Law Special Interest Section of the American Association of Law Libraries.
