Equality and justiciability in the context of international human rights law

In our first episode, Lindsey Reynolds, Senior Solicitor at the Commission, and Julius Komorowski, Advocate from Terra Firma Advocates discuss the themes of equality and justiciability in the context of international human rights law. 

Short introductory version

This is a basic introduction to the UN treaty monitoring system as well as the non-discrimination principle which underpins the key treaties.  This shorter webcast is aimed at advisors and lawyers with limited or no background knowledge.

Full version

The full version also includes a more technical section which  considers how and when international human rights instruments can be relied upon in domestic proceedings.  This part will be of more interest to advocates, solicitors and academics.
