New book! 'Civil Remedies and Human Rights in Flux: Key Developments in Selected Jurisdictions'
The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights is delighted to announce the publication of the book ‘Civil Remedies and Human Rights in Flux: Key Legal Developments in Selected Jurisdictions’ (Hart Publishing, 2022), edited by Dr Ekaterina Aristova and Dr Uglješa Grušić.
This innovative new collection explores the role of civil liability claims in fostering human rights accountability across sixteen jurisdictions in the Global South and Global North. It examines existing mechanisms in domestic law for bringing civil claims in relation to the involvement of states, corporations, and individuals in specific categories of human rights violation: (i) assault or unlawful arrest and detention of persons; (ii) environmental harm; and (iii) harmful or unfair labour conditions.
The book is one of the significant outcomes of the project on civil liability for human rights violations led by Professor Catherine O’Regan at the Bonavero Institute and funded by the Oak Foundation.
