Critics’ Reviews

“This book deserves a very warm reception. It is timely and relevant, appearing as international human rights law itself is promoting and shaping the globalisation of a culture of rights. As the first comprehensive Canadian international human rights law text, this volume provides a particularly illuminating Canadian perspective and approach to the subject, including a very useful chapter on our domestic reception of international human rights law. In filling this lacuna in the literature, I expect this work to reduce the reliance previously placed by Canadian students and instructors on materials developed with American and British audiences in mind. As if this were not enough, compounding the value of the text’s unique Canadian perspective, timeliness and relevance, is the obvious care and exhaustiveness with which it has been researched and the accessible style in which it is written.”
Hon. Louise Arbour, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (from the Foreword)
