Joint UK launch of URG and Routledge Handbook of International Human Rights Law

This event marking the URG’s official UK launch will be attended by representatives of High Commissions, NGOs, academia and the URG Board.
The event also marks the London launch of The Routledge Handbook of International Human Rights Law, edited by Professor Sir Nigel Rodley and Scott Sheeran, which  provides the definitive global survey of the discipline of international human rights law. Each of the 41 chapters is written by a leading expert and provides a contemporary overview of a significant area within the field. As well as covering topics integral to the theory and practice of international human rights law the volume offers a broader perspective through examinations of the ways in which human rights law interacts with other legal regimes and other international institutions, and by addressing the current and future challenges facing human rights. Providing up-to-date and authoritative articles covering key aspects of international human rights law, this book work is an essential work of reference for scholars, practitioners and students alike.
