Kirsten Roberts Lyer Publishes New Book

November 22, 2021

Kirsten Roberts Lyer, DPP Associate Professor of Practice has published her new book at Oxford University Press titled National Human Rights Institutions: Rules, Requirements and Practice. The book is an authoritative guide to the practice of functioning of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) around the world. It is a comprehensive reference for the findings of the Sub-Committee on Accreditation (SCA) on NHRIs in an accessible and thematically organised format, and provides a broad global perspective on the work of NHRIs, discussing institutions from 128 countries. The book covers over all thematic areas of NHRI structure and practice, and includes expertise and insight from David Langtry's extensive tenure as SCA Chair. The full table of contents is available here.

DPP Associate Professor Kirsten Roberts Lyer said "We very much hope that our book will be a 'go to' guide on the UN Paris Principles, NHRIs and the SCA's findings, and help the continuing work to strengthen NHRIs around the world."
