This is the first book to provide an inside account of how a United Nations human rights treaty body actually works. At the same time it is an introduction to the international law of racial discrimination. The book focuses on the practical operation and implementation of the International Covenant on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, emphasising throughout the relationship between the law and politics. The book takes account of current issues in international race relations - from the process of dismantling apartheid in South Africa to recent horrors and genocides in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Michael Banton's latest work will be crucial reading for anyone interested in eliminating racial discrimination on an international level. About Michael Banton: Michael Banton is Chairman of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, 1996-98.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A book which all lawyers concerned with the international protection of human rights should read ... It is an insightful portrayal of the Committee at work, with all its foibles, strengths and weaknesses. * International and Comparative Law Quarterly *
a most welcome addition to the literature. ... It is difficult to do justice to the scope and depth of Professor Banton's analysis in a brief review. * unknown *
