Prof Sandra Fredman Writes About New Book on OUP Blog

by | Dec 5, 2018

OxHRH Director Sandra Fredman writes about her new book on the OUP Constitutional Law blog:

“The need to study comparative human rights law is not just an academic one: budding lawyers who study the human rights judgements of other countries will be able to cite them in cases before courts in their own countries; judges trained in comparative human rights law will be in a position to assess the value of judgements from comparable jurisdictions and incorporate them into their reasoning, whether by accepting them or diverging from them…. These are not simply abstract issues. What matters are the stories behind human rights cases, the urgent issues that real people in many countries pursue all the way to apex courts and beyond.”
