The leading textbook on international human rights law is now better than ever. The content has been fully updated and now provides more detailed coverage of substantive human rights, along with new sections on the war on terror and on the progressive realization of economic and social rights, making this the most comprehensive book in the field. It has a new, more student-friendly text design and has retained the features which made the first edition so engaging and accessible, including the concise and critical style, and questions and case studies within each chapter, as well as suggestions for further reading. Written by De Schutter, whose extensive experience working in the field and teaching the subject in both the US and EU gives him a unique perspective and valuable insight into the requirements of lecturers and students. This is an essential tool for all students of international human rights law.

'[This] book is an invaluable resource in international human rights law for students, academics and practitioners. It provides a clear commentary, judicious selection of case law, legislation, academic debates, critically styled questions as well as case studies in each chapter and suggestions on further reading are intuitive.' Oluwarotimi Charles Olubokun, International Human Rights Law Review
'Olivier De Schutter is a leading scholar in the field of human rights on the European and international scene. After the first edition of his International Human Rights Law in 2010, this second and revised edition, including in particular chapters on human rights in the context of terrorism and on the progressive realization of economic and social rights, is a masterpiece. Taking an in-depth look at, in turn, the sources of international human rights law, the states' obligations and the mechanisms of protection, this book is a rock-solid foundation for all those concerned with human rights. It is today the most intelligent, authoritative, comprehensive, stimulating textbook, which makes it a unique and indispensable companion.' Françoise Tulkens, Former Vice-President, European Court of Human Rights
'This new edition of Olivier De Schutter's International Human Rights Law: Cases, Materials, Commentary is an important addition to the growing body of educational materials in international human rights law. The book is comprehensive from substantive and procedural perspectives. It is detailed, yet accessible, and provides in depth coverage of the sources of human rights law, the obligations pertaining to these rights, and the mechanisms for implementation and supervision. The author has achieved an exceptional balance between primary materials and commentary, which makes it highly useful for the students and lecturers alike. The questions at the end of each section will challenge the students and stimulate debate as well as further study.' Sigrun Skogly, Lancaster University
'Olivier de Schutter brings an outstanding level of academic rigour, deep knowledge and breadth of practical experience to the field of international human rights law. This second edition of an already definitive work is greatly to be welcomed.' Conor Gearty, London School of Economics and Political Science
