Description

Brookers Human Rights Law brings together commentary and analysis on the principal human rights statutes in a domestic and international context.

Human rights law in New Zealand has been evolving and developing since the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840. While there is a close interrelationship between the key statutes, human rights law impacts on diverse areas of law which would otherwise be unrelated. Brookers Human Rights Law is the only product to combine a comprehensive selection of human rights materials, including domestic legislation, commentary and key international instruments.

The team of Brookers Human Rights Law updating authors bring together human rights experts working in legal practice, university law schools and for the Human Rights Commission. This results in a balanced and comprehensive view of an important, constantly developing, area of law. Brookers Human Rights Law is a valuable resource for anyone who is required to provide advice on or to research human rights law in New Zealand.

The format is designed to allow easy reference and quick access to the relevant information, and the human rights statutes included allow a wide variety of practical and academic queries to be addressed with confidence.
