Human Rights Law: From Dissemination to Application

Essays in Honour of Göran Melander


Editors: and
This unique collection of essays has been compiled in honour of Professor Göran Melander, one of the founders of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI), in Lund, Sweden. Göran Melander served as the Institute’s first director and subsequently as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. The volume illustrates the complex relationship between dissemination of human rights standards and their application in human rights law, and thus serves as a tribute to Melander’s belief in and commitment to the dynamics of education in human rights law. The contributors are human rights scholars and activists, all colleagues and friends associated with various stages of Melander’s professional career.
