Fragmentation in International Human Rights Law - Beyond Conflict of Laws

Special issue in the Nordic Journal of Human Rights (Vol. 32, Issue 2), edited by former MultiRights Postdoc Marjan Ajevski.

The issue looks at the consequences of institutional fragmentation within one branch of international law: International human rights law. Has the practice of international human rights Courts and tribunals led to fragmented human rights protection?

The special issue is the result of a workshop organised by Ajevski in 2013. It contains the following contributions:

  • Fragmentation in International Human Rights Law – Beyond Conflict of Laws (Marjan Ajevski)
  • Comparative International Human Rights Law: An Analysis of the Right to Private and Family Life across Human Rights “Jurisdictions” (Lucas Lixinski)
  • Freedom of Speech as Related to Journalists in the ECtHR, IACtHR and the Human Rights Committee – a Study of Fragmentation (Marjan Ajevski)

  • Fragmentation in International Human Rights Law: Political Parties and Freedom of Association in the Practice of the UN Human Rights Committee, European Court of Human Rights and Inter-American Court of Human Rights (Svetlana Tyulkina)
