The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights [ICCPR] is the most important human rights treaty in the world: it is of universal relevance, being open for ratification to all States. Now fully updated and in its second edition, this book provides a comprehensive collation and analysis of the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee, the monitoring body established under the ICCPR. The substantive articles of the ICCPR, as well as the admissibility provisions of the First Optional Protocol, are analysed, incorporating excerpts from decisions arising from individual communications under the First Optional Protocol, as well as relevant General Comments and Concluding Observations on States parties. Decisions under other United Nations treaties, such as the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, are also extracted to highlight complementary UN human rights jurisprudence. Comprehensively indexed and cross-referenced, this book offers ready access to the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee and other UN human rights treaty bodies.Presented in a clear and illuminating manner, it will be of use to the judiciary, human rights practitioners, human rights activists, government institutions, academics, and students alike.
