Universal Human Rights and Extraterritorial Obligations

Book with Barb Chapter web2.jpg
Human Rights Program Director, Barbara Frey, has written a chapter in a new book, Universal Human Rights and Extraterritorial Obligations, on the obligations to protect the right of life by constructing a rule of transfer regarding small arms and light weapons. The book examines both the international and domestic foundations of human rights law and addresses how states' actions or omissions may affect the human rights of individuals in foreign states.
