Equality and non-discrimination principles are present in the International Bill of Rights that comprises the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).
The NCHR works to support the achievement of the equality and non-discrimination principles found in international human rights instruments and in the new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Nordic Journal of Human Rights winter issue for 2016 features four research articles covering a wide range of human rights topics: international election observation, women’s rights, substantive equality and judicial responses to ethno-cultural claims, as well as an ethnographic study of Mayan concepts and human rights framework. In this issue, all our contributing authors analyse and promote the development of more sophisticated rights frameworks and jurisprudence.
This issue features a timely article on the need for a closer relationship between fiscal transparency and human rights, and an article which offers a critical analysis of how the UN Human Rights Council conceives of traditional cultural practices. The latest issue also highlights the transition to an inclusive education system for disabled children, and features a reflection piece on human rights and dignity in health care. Articles are available from Taylor & Francis for download.
This project addresses the exercise of authority by international institutions: its features, its causes and effects, and its implications.
