Constitutional Court to discuss the judiciary's influence in effecting societal change, its relationship with the state and the marginalized and its role in breathing life into the rights to equality, free speech and life. Seminal human rights court cases that retain their relevance despite the passage of time, served as catalysts for reflection, recollection and discussion by some of the world's leading jurists. The first-hand accounts of some of those who had been involved in these cases lend poignancy and provide a unique insight into cases that have shaped human rights law. This book presents fresh and inspiring perspectives on the canon of human rights law. The discussions - lively, engaging, responsive and open-ended - place cases in context while mapping their trajectories in society and across boundaries. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
