Human Rights Module: On Crimes Against Humanity, Genocide, Other Crimes Against Human Rights, and War Crimes

By Jimmy Gurule and Jordan J. Paust


The Human Rights Module provides an up-to-date exploration of the \u22core\u22 international crimes most often associated with human rights infractions for those interested in human rights and for use in international law courses, human rights courses, or seminars. \u22Core\u22 crimes include crimes against humanity, genocide, other crimes against human rights (such as torture, criminalized race discrimination, apartheid, hostage-taking, and disappearances), and war crimes. There is also a separate chapter on sanctions against Karadzic that applies many of the core crimes in both criminal and civil sanctions arenas (before the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia and the U.S. federal courts) with respect to one setting: the conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina. This book is an excellent resource for courses focusing on crimes against humanity, genocide, and other crimes against human rights (and/or war crimes). Author Jordan J. Paust presents cases and materials in Part One and documents in Part Two. These sections may be used separately or in different groupings as relevant to particular needs. Non-scholarly readers interested in human rights will also find the book informative.
