Judicial and quasi-judicial institutions play an increasingly important interpretative role in bringing international human rights law to life and shaping its contours. Any study of contemporary international human rights law must therefore look beyond a mere textual analysis of codified norms. Only through critical analysis of the human rights decision-making process can the breadth and effectiveness of the protection afforded be fruitfully gauged. Such analysis is urgently needed in a multi-polar, international community where questions concerning the function and adequacy of human rights law are routinely raised. The International Human Rights Law in Practice Series meets this need by studying the practice of international and regional institutions in the field of human rights. Through the publication of rigorous scholarship in the form of peer-reviewed monographs, commentaries and documentary collections, the Series aims to disseminate specialized research, foster debate on topical human rights issues, and contribute to the training of human rights lawyers.
