GAPS IN NTERNATIONAL PROTECTION AND THE POTENTIAL FOR REDRESS THROUGH INDIVIDUAL COMPLAINTS PROCEDURES

Published in International Journal of Refugee Law, vol.9, no.3, pp. 392-414, Oxford University Press, 1997 (Copyright)

(Written when working in the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies).

Abstract: With special reference to the 1st Optional Protocol of the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention Against Torture and the European Convention on Human Rights, examine underlying concepts and gaps in refugee protection. Taking accountrelevant mechanisms and case law which protects from refoulement, the author shows that internationalmechanisms can serve to counter-balance politically expedient decisions ofauthorities and thatprocedures deserve the attention of practitioners. Those concerned with international protection should familiarize themselves with the admissibility criteria and acquire the skills to lodge a petition.

HAS UNHCR'S PRESENCE IN MOLDOVA MADE A DIFFERENCE?


Chisinau 10 March, 2001

FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND NON-BELIEVERS: TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN

Written in Utrecht (NL), 8 March 1991 - The author remains extremely grateful to the Human Rights Directorate of the Council of Europe for a fellowship for studies in the field of human rights which made it possible to complete his Study "The position of non-believers in national and international law with special reference to the European Convention on Human Rights" (Rijswijk 1989) which forms a basis for the current article. Written in my capacity of the legal researcher of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), under the Council of Europe Directorate of Human Rights fellowship Programme for studies and research in the field of human rights (available on request through the guestbook).

 

REPORT ON THE DEFINITION OF MINORITIES

English juridical study that defines minorities and puts the term minorities in a social and ethnical context. At the same time he looks into the connection between minorities and human rights and tries to find out if a minority take up a special position within the state or ought to take up a special position.
(not available in full text but can be ordered from: Dutch Centre for Humanist Studies, Utrecht, 1989. Price DFl. 20,00 Order-number 89/1)

Also published in SIM Special No. 8, Report on the Definition of Minorities, Utrecht: SIM, 1989. - 72 p. (out of stock - can obtained through the Guestbook)

Summary: The purpose of the study is twofold. In the first place it should serve to reach a better understanding of the extreme difficulties involved in formulating a universally acceptable and applicable definition of the term. Secondly, it will hopefully also contribute to future attempts to do away with hardships minorities must endure. In this study the following questions were to be addressed: the definition and constituent elements of the term "minority"; To place the term in it's social and ethnic context; to investigate the relationship between minority and human rights; to determine whether a minority has a special place in the State or legal system and if not, whether it should be given one; to discover to what extent minorities or their members are subject to special rights and obligations in our legal system; what would the ideal situation be?
