Item description for Responding to Human Rights Violations, 1946-1999 (International Studies in Human Rights) by K. Tomaisevski...
This volume maps out the response of states to human rights violations. It covers the period 1946--1999 and offers a complete and unmatched record for this period. Its starting point is that such responses are not established and accepted state practice. Traditional, if unwritten, norms of states' behaviour developed through centuries of silence and inaction; the prevalent reaction to human rights violations by another state remains the absence of any response. Furthermore, this book probes into evidence of active and passive complicity by reviewing aid to countries in which violations have been taking place and diplomatic initiatives undertaken to shield violators from public opprobrium. Since international law is generated through state practice, the book highlights the ongoing tussle between the pre-1946 heritage of silence and inaction and the 1946--1999 haphazard pattern of responses to violations.
