New OSF Report – From Rights to Remedies: Structures and Strategies for Implementing International Human Rights Decisions
Too often, the decisions and recommendations of international legal bodies charged with protecting human rights are ignored by states unable or unwilling to implement them.
The newest Open Society Foundations report, From Rights to Remedies, explores these challenges by examining how international human rights decisions and recommendations are implemented at the national level. It analyzes the strategies and structures—within the executive branch, legislatures, and domestic courts—that can either promote or thwart implementation. It also looks at the special role that national human rights institutions have to play in the execution process.
By combining analysis with recommendations, model laws, and case studies that span the European, Inter-American and African systems, as well as the UN treaty bodies, From Rights to Remedies offers both a political and legal roadmap to more effective domestic implementation.
