"In conclusion, Prof. Rehman's book will be of great assistance to those approaching international human rights law for the first time and to those who want to gain an overview of systems for the protection of human rights that are not widely known, such as the African one and the UN non-treaty procedures." "[The book] ...is excellent to get an overview of this branch of the law and a flavour of its most interesting and controversial topics" Enrique Carnero Rojo - Assistant Legal Adviser, Office of the Prosecutor, International Criminal Court, The Hague (The Netherlands). Journal of International Law of peace and Armed Conflict - Volume 18, 2/2005
