New Book: Tracing the Roles of Soft Law in Human Rights
The book examines the roles of soft law in the international human rights regime using a broad range of case studies.
It includes case studies on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and on the regulation of armed conflict by soft law, two areas where soft law plays a paramount role in changing the reach of human rights protection.
The book analyses the role of soft law within human rights regimes where there are established hard law standards and also in emerging areas of international law where there is no substantial treaty codification of norms.
The book is edited by Stéphanie Lagoutte, Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen and John Cerone and published by Oxford University Press.
