This unit is designed for lawyers and students who have an interest in the means by which international human rights law is enforced. The emphasis is on illustrating how international human rights instruments are able to afford victims with remedies, both in the international domain, and via domestic courts. The comparative method will be used to illustrate how different jurisdictions have responded to the challenge of incorporating international human rights instruments into their respective domestic domains.
