In this book, John P. Pace provides the most complete account to-date of the United Nations human rights programme, both in substance and in chronological breadth. Pace worked at the heart of this programme for over thirty years, including as the Secretary of the Commission on Human Rights, and Coordinator of the World Conference on Human Rights, which took place in Vienna in 1993. He traces the issues taken up by the Commission after its launch in 1946, and the methods undertaken to enhance absorption and domestication of international human rights standards. He lays out the special procedures carried out by the UN, and the emergence of international human rights law. The book then turns to the establishment of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the mainstreaming of human rights across the United Nations system, eventually leading to the establishment of the Human Rights Council to replace the Commission in 2006. Many of the problems we face today, including conflict, poverty, and environmental issues, have their roots in human rights problems. This book identifies what has been done at the international level in the past, and points towards what still needs to be done for the future.

John Pace is a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Faculty of Law, University of New South Wales and Adjunct at the Sydney Centre for International Law at the University of Sydney. His UN career (1966-1999) coincided with the introduction of special procedures and the first human rights investigations. As human rights activities evolved, John was given responsibility for other, new, activities including the technical cooperation and the external relations programmes. As part of these responsibilities, the author travelled to many countries and witnessed first-hand the effect of human rights problems and the ongoing need to address them. His extensive field experience was balanced by his responsibility for the Commission on Human Rights as its Secretary (1978-1994), and as Coordinator of the World Conference on Human Rights which took place in Vienna in 1993. The author has continued to build his human rights experiences in the last twenty years, undertaking various responsibilities such as in Indonesia, Iraq, and Liberia among many others. John's current priorities include human rights of women, migrant workers and asylum seekers, administration of justice issues, and human rights in countering terrorism.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
