Tracing the Roles of Soft Law in Human Rights

Edited by Stephanie Lagoutte, Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen, and Edited By John Cerone

  • Examines the roles of soft law in the international human rights regime using a broad range of case studies
  • 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
  • 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
