“Human rights and fundamental freedoms are the birthright of all human beings; their protection and promotion is the first responsibility of Governments.”

World Conference on Human Rights, 1993

Human rights are at the forefront of worries not just for governments and authorities, but also for private businesses and the average person, as the globe becomes more and more of a global village, where what occurs in one place frequently has ramifications for those in other countries.

Human Rights Law: International, Malaysian, and Islamic Perspectives is a one-of-a-kind study that looks at the subject from three different angles. Its goal is to provide human rights legislation in a straightforward and understandable manner, answering essential concerns about the subject.

The book opens with an examination of the nature, extent, and efficacy of the international legal framework for human rights (Part I – Human Rights Law: The International Framework), which is divided into three sections. Part II – Malaysia and Human Rights: Traditions vs Universality – examines the Malaysian stance in respect to the implementation of international human rights legislation and contemporary human rights challenges in Malaysia. Finally, Part III – Human Rights: Islamic Viewpoint addresses human rights from an Islamic perspective, elaborating on the stance of Shari'ah (Islamic law) on human rights.

This work provides a rich overview of both theory and practise in relation to respect for human rights, and is a valuable resource for all those interested in exploring and studying human rights law. It is useful both as a coherent exposition of human rights law and as a collection of self-contained papers reflecting the distinct perspectives of eighteen distinguished scholars.

Readership: Ministries of Foreign and Home Affairs, Royal Malaysian Police and other law enforcement agencies, Prison Department, Judges, human rights commission offices, practitioners in the human rights arena, civil society that has concerns over the protection of human rights, students of public international law, constitutional law, human rights law, civil liberties, and political science
