The Idea of International Human Rights Law

Steven Wheatley

  • The first work to apply the insights from complexity theory to human rights
  • Provides an explanatory model for the systems of international human rights law observed by international lawyers
  • Self-consciously locates its analysis within the body of literature on 'human rights', whilst drawing on insights from systems theory
