The School of Law at Middlesex University London invites you to the Book Launch: William A. Schabas, Nowak's Commentary on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, 3rd ed., Engel: Kehl, 2019.
Nowak's Commentary first appeared in German in the late 1980s, and then in an English edition in the early 1990s. It is the authoritative study of one of the primary international human rights treaties, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. William Schabas, Professor of International Law at Middlesex University, has done a major revision and update of the Commentary, drawing upon the abundant case law of the Human Rights Committee, its concluding observations on State reports, and judgments of other tribunals including the International Court of Justice. At more than 1,200 pages, with a rich index, it provides a convenient guide to scholars, lawyers, activists and judges, with insights not only into the interpretation of the Covenant but also human rights law more generally.
