Extraterritorial Scope of Human Rights

If you are interested in the study of extraterritorial aspect of human rights, the last edition of the Journal of the Community Law discusses this subject comprehensively. From the aspect of national courts, which regard themselves competent to examine cases connected with violations of human rights beyond the borders of the given country, to human rights treaties to be applied outside the territories of the states which are parties thereto. Reservations to treaties dealing with these issues, which are to limit their territorial application, give rise to numerous legal controversies. The special edition is also dealing with competition between the responsibility of the territorial state and the state which exercised effective control in the territory of that state or with joint responsibility.
