New Publication – ‘Civil Liability for Human Rights Violations: A Handbook for Practitioners’

The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights is delighted to announce the publication of ‘Civil Liability for Human Rights Violations – A Handbook for Practitioners’ edited by Dr Ekaterina Aristova and Professor Kate O’Regan.

The digital Handbook is one of the outcomes of the project on civil liability for human rights violations led by the Bonavero Institute in 2019-2022 and funded by the Oak Foundation. It is intended to serve as a practical resource to understand when and how civil claims can be used as a tool to vindicate human rights in 19 jurisdictions: Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, China, Colombia, England & Wales, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine, the United States, and Zambia. The Handbook is designed to enable practitioners to refer directly to a specific jurisdiction, and each report follows a uniform template. To celebrate the publication of the Handbook, the Bonavero Institute will publish a series of interviews with the authors of the country reports. Please follow this link to access the recordings.
