Book cover


The book is published under the title: “Problem of Enforcement in International Law: The Need for Determination of Human Rights Recognized as Jus Cogens”.
This book is focused on the issue of peremptory norms (jus cogens), formulated in the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, and its applicability in core Human Rights implementation. It thus examines the nature of jus cogens and its formation vis-à-vis Human Rights and advocates for the additional value that jus cogens can bring to core Human Rights implementation. The focal problem that the book addresses is the lack of clarity attached to jus cogens and its subsequent effects on effective core Human Rights implementation.

Book coverTo wonder why jus cogens remains ineffective and to see what can be done, and by whom, to enhance its impact on core Human Rights is the main goal of this book. The author firmly believes that the jus cogens concept brings a significant contribution to core Human Rights implementation, putting them at the foundation of the international legal order. This effect is substantial to the future core Human Rights development, but, depends also on the future redefinition of jus cogens itself.
