Judges, Transition, and Human Rights

John Morison, Kieran McEvoy, and Gordon Anthony


This book brings together leading scholars from a range of disciplines to examine some of the most pressing questions asked of the role of human rights in international relations. The chapters focus on the intersection between the role of judges, the language of human rights, and the politics of societies in transition. The international range of the chapters covers experiences as diverse as South Africa, the USA, Great Britain, the Balkans, and Northern Ireland.

Keywords: human rights, international relations, judges, politics, South Africa, USA, Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Balkans
