About the Book :
The antique, dilapidated or rusted Conventions, Declarations, Rules, Principles, Codes etc. of the United Nations need periodic amendments, revision, alterations, deletions and repeallings. Sometimes, they must be replaced by another. Most unfortunately, they do not take place. A fair Trial of United Nations means an academic assessment of the existing U.N. documents on Human Rights and their relevance and validity in the changing and changed scenario. This book contains such a trial of—
• Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
• Principles on the Effective Investigation and Documentation of Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
• Principles on the Effective Prevention and Investigation of Extra-legal, Arbitrary and Summary Executions and
• U.N. Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials.
The appraisal of the U.N. documents will be of great interest for anyone concerned with Human Rights and a new WORLD ORDER.
