This book reviews the jurisprudence of international tribunals that have jurisdiction and competence to afford remedies to individuals whose human rights have been violated. It also looks at the comparative law of remedies, especially as reflected in national judicial decisions based on international human rights law. The problems of systematic abuse and developing appropriate responses to it are discussed, with particular reference to the work of the United Nations. The book's central concern is with the relationship between victims and the state causing injury, as well as with the powers and functions of the various international and national tribunals that hear human rights cases. The aim is to propose a theoretical foundation for human rights remedies, together with standards and principles on which future remedies may be based.
