Recently published: Civil Remedies and Human Rights in Flux (Aristova and Grusic eds)

What private law avenues are open to victims of human rights violations? This collection explores this question across sixteen jurisdictions in the Global South and Global North, examining mechanisms in domestic law for bringing civil claims in relation to the involvement of states, corporations and individuals in specific categories of human rights violation: (i) assault or unlawful arrest and detention of persons; (ii) environmental harm; and (iii) harmful or unfair labour conditions. This global perspective assesses the question in jurisdictions as diverse as Kenya, Switzerland, the US and the Philippines. A much needed statement on responding to human rights violations.
