From Rights to Remedies: Implementing International Human Rights Decisions

Too often, the decisions of international human rights bodies are ignored by states unable or unwilling to implement them. From Rights to Remedies explores this challenge by examining how these decisions are implemented at the national level. It analyzes the strategies and structures—within the executive branch, legislatures, and domestic courts—that can either promote or thwart implementation, as well as the role that national human rights institutions can play in the process.
