The issue of minority rights continues to occupy a sensitive position in international law. Historical as well as contemporary events show that the subject is also capable of engulfing the international community as a whole. The contention of the present study is that international law is in itself a difficult medium for providing adequate rights for minorities and for effectively safeguarding those rights. This volume analyses the weaknesses in the international protection of minority rights through a detailed examination of the practices and policies of Pakistan. Thought-provoking and original in its approach, this volume will prove to be of enormous value to international human rights lawyers and to scholars engaged in the study of minority rights in South-Asia and Pakistan.

The Classification and Analysis of International Instruments
This work contains a practical methodology for classifying treaties and other international instruments. As the nation-state loses ground and the “world citizen” moves center-stage in international law, Douglas Johnston presents an empirically-premised and functionally-oriented system that serves not only to promote intellectual order, but also to satisfy the operational needs of making and shaping public policy. He proceeds with many examples and keen insights, successfully linking the international law of the past, present, and potential future of world order.

This book presents a unique perspective on the development and status quo of judicial review in East and Southeast Asia. In particular, it answers the questions of whether the system of judicial review of administrative action functions in East and Southeast Asian countries in the same way as in Western countries, and whether this system functions in the same way in countries that adopt the principle of concentration of powers and the principle of separation of powers. Together with papers on judicial review in the Netherlands and Germany, and references to English law, the legal systems discussed constitute a heterogeneous group of developed and developing economies, continental and Anglo-Saxon systems of law and capitalist and socialist legal orders.
The research and comparisons presented here form an invaluable resource for any scholar and lawyer interested in contemporary Asian law, or in the many facets of comparative administrative law.
The Austrian Review of International and European Law is an annual publication that provides a scholarly forum for the discussion of issues of international and European law, with emphasis on topics of special interest for Austria. The main part of the present volume contains the papers of the 2011 Stanford – Vienna Human Rights Conference and focuses on a comparison between US and European approaches to human rights from different perspectives. In addition, this volume of the Review includes the usual parts, ie general articles and the comprehensive digest of Austrian practice in international law, encompassing judicial decisions, executive as well as parliamentary documents relating to international law. The concluding parts of the Review contain longer book reviews, shorter book notes and a selective bibliography on international investment law prepared by the library of the Peace Palace in The Hague.
The revival of group consciousness in Eastern European countries in the wake of the Cold War has put the protection of subnational groups high on the political agenda. The present book bears witness to the renewed interest in the legal position of subnational groups in international law.
This book and the Conference, at which provisional versions of most of the contributions were presented, originate in perceived deficiencies of contemporary international law to protect subnational groups within a legal framework of which the principal subjects are states. Divided into three parts, the book commences with an analysis of the antagonistic relation between the right of peoples to self-determination and the right of states to territorial integrity, and the need to redefine these concepts in the post-Cold War era. The book continues with the highly controversial issue of the attribution of rights to subnational groups and the identification of subnational groups which would be entitled to such rights. The second part deals with the identification and protection of peoples and minorities at different levels of organization, viz. subnational, national and supranational. This part is followed by an analysis of the modes and means by which international obligations vis-à-vis subnational groups can be enforced. Not only the judicial means are considered, but also the justifiability of recourse to military means to the cause of subnational groups.
This book not only provides an in-depth analysis of contemporary international law with respect to the protection of peoples and minorities, but also of the law as it is developing in the post-Cold War era.
The first application to the European Commission of Human Rights was received in 1955. In over forty years, the Commission has registered more than 40 000 applications. Its published decisions run to around 150 volumes - 46 in the Collection of decisions (1960 to 1974) and nearly 100 in Decisions and reports (1975 onwards).
From this mass of case-law, the authors have distilled the essential elements to produce a one-volume guide to the jurisprudence of the Convention and its protocols. In an article-by-article approach focused on the Court's case-law, they present key, passages from the judgments relevant to each article, putting them in context with their own commentary.
The arrangement by article, the extensive extracts from the case-law, the detailed table of contents, and the index give the reader different ways of approaching the book, making it a useful tool for both the newcomer to Convention law and the more experienced researcher.

La première requête transmise à la Commission européenne des Droits de l'Homme date de 1955. En quelque quarante ans, la Commission en a enregistré plus de 40 000. La publication de ses décisions représente environ 150 volumes: 46 Recueils des décisions, couvrant les années 1960 à 1974, et, par la suite, près de 100 volumes de Décisions et rapports.
Les auteurs du présent ouvrage ont extrait l'essentiel de cette vaste jurisprudence et l'ont rassemb1é en un volume unique, présentant, pour chaque article de la Convention, les passages clés d'arrêts de la Cour et de certaines décisions de la Commission, assortis de leurs commentaires.
La présentation par article de la Convention, les amples extraits de la jurisprudence, la table des matières détaillée et l'index donnent au lecteur différentes voies d'accès à cet ouvrage, outil indispensable tant pour le néophyte que pour le spécialiste plus expérimenté de la Convention.

Thirty-five years ago, on 16 December 1966, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted without a vote the two International Covenants on Human Rights. Together with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Cove-nant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, including its two Optional Protocols, form what is often referred to as the International Bill of Human Rights. Both Covenants entered into force ten years later. At present, 145 States have ratified or acceded to the Interna-tional Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
Under articles 16 and 17 of the Covenant, each State party undertakes to submit re-ports for the consideration by the Economic and Social Council under a programme established by the Council. However, in 1985, the Council decided to set up the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights to discharge that function - to monitor the implementation of the Covenant by States parties. At its sixth session, in 1991, the Committee adopted criteria for formulating concluding observations after the consideration of a State party report, and at its eighth session, in 1993, the Com-mittee started to use a standard format for the presentation of its concluding observations. The Committee makes a general evaluation of the report and of the dialogue with the delegation, makes note of positive aspects, factors and difficulties impeding the implementation, and of principal subjects of concern. It also makes suggestions and recommendations to the State party concerned.
The present volume contains concluding observations adopted by the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights at its eighth to twenty-seventh sessions (1993-2001).

Foreword by Mrs. Mary Robinson, the then United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
