The United Nations Principles to Combat Impunity: A Commentary published by Oxford University Press and edited by the two Co-Directors of our Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law, Frank Haldemann and Thomas Unger, provides an unmatched analysis of the United Nations Set of Principles for the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights Through Action to Combat Impunity (UN Principles to Combat Impunity).
While widely recognized as an authoritative reference point for the fight against impunity, the UN Principles to Combat Impunity have so far not received a systematic analysis. This new book fills this gap. Bringing together leading experts in the field, it provides a comprehensive academic commentary of the 38 principles and engages in detail with the various dimensions of the fight against impunity and transitional justice.
In this book launch, the two editors Frank Haldemann and Thomas Unger will provide an overview of the project followed by a discussion with a group of distinguished scholars and practitioners.
