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.

The International Human Rights Law Review is a bi-annual peer-reviewed journal. It aims to stimulate research and thinking on contemporary human rights issues, problems, challenges and policies. It is particularly interested in soliciting papers, whether in the legal domain or other social sciences, that are unique in their approach and which seek to address poignant concerns of our times. One of the principal aims of the journal is to provide an outlet to human rights scholars, practitioners and activists in the developing world who have something tangible to say about their experiences on the ground, or in order to discuss cases and practices that are generally inaccessible to European and North-American audiences. The Editorial Board and the publisher are keen to work hands-on with such contributors and to help find solutions where necessary to facilitate translation or language editing in respect of accepted articles.

The journal is aimed at academics, students, government officials, human rights practitioners, and lawyers working in the area, as well as individuals and organisations interested in the areas of human rights law. The Journal publishes critical articles that consider human rights law, policy and practice in their various contexts, at global, regional, sub-regional and national levels, book reviews, and a section focused on an up-to-date appraisal of important jurisprudence and practice of the UN and regional human rights systems including those in the developing world.

Non-discrimination is a fundamental principle of international human rights law. This volume discusses the international legal framework on this principle and comparatively elaborates the definition of discrimination as well as the grounds of discrimination in the various general and specialised international human rights treaties, including the International Labour Organisation conventions. The element of special measures as an integral aspect of this principle is also raised. A comparative discussion on the incorporation of international standards on the principle of non-discrimination established in the international treaties in regional as well as national human rights frameworks is also set forth to provide practical illustrations of the application of these standards in more specific and localised perspectives. Selected regional frameworks discussed are the African, American and European human rights regional frameworks and the national frameworks are South Africa and Brazil.
