Summary "This collection of essays offers seven distinct perspectives on the present status of access to justice: its development in customary international law, the stress put on it in times of emergency, its problematic exercise in the case of violations of the law of war, its application to torture victims, its development in the case law of the UN Human Rights Committee and of the European Court of Human Rights , its application to the emerging field of environmental justice, and, finally, access to justice as part of fundamental rights in European law."--BOOK JACKET.
