The cases included in the Annotated Compilation of Case Law seeks to capture the diversity of the range of interpretive effects that international human rights law has on other branches of international law. These include providing a humanised interpretation of international law, enabling of systematic interpretation, contributing to the progressively development of another branch, filling normative gaps in another branch, and displacing existing standards or doctrines in another branch.
We hope that the reader acts as a source for international law researchers and practitioners of international law, who are interested in investigating the diverse functions of international human rights law and jurisprudence in other fields of international law and promoting the further entrenchment of human rights in international law.
