about

Kate Parlett's monograph on the individual in the international legal system examines the way in which individuals have come to have a certain status in international law, from the first treaties conferring rights and capacities on individuals through to the present day, including very recent developments in human rights law and international investment law. It focusses on international claims processes, humanitarian law, international criminal law and human rights law and, reflecting on comprehensive analysis which cuts across all of these fields, draws conclusions about structural change in the international legal system.

Editorial Reviews

'Kate Parlett's analysis is both succinct and comprehensive, inasmuch as it covers 'the areas of international law which have the clearest potential to engage individuals' ... The organization of the reasoning in the three ... historical periods for each of the areas subject to scrutiny gives the book a clear structure and allows the reader to draw parallels and identify differences in the direct comparison between different fields of law.' Andreas Th. Müller, European Journal of International Law
