Implementation of human rights treaties in federal states

What is it about?

The paper contains a critical analysis of the implementation requirements of international human rights treaties and the European Convention on Human Rights. The focus of the analysis concerns the structural and institutional frameworks typically found in federal states. The assessment seeks to contribute to a deeper understanding of the benefits and challenges of implementation in federal states.

Why is it important?

Some 40% of the world’s population live in federal states. Consequently, the question of how federal states implement human rights in their internal order and the ways in which they react to international monitoring is of considerable importance.
