Step closer to ensure the legal enforcement of Human Rights in Timor-Leste
Launch of Human Rights Law Book
The legal book – written in Portuguese, one of the two official languages of Timor-Leste - deals with a number of legal issues related to the protection and judicial enforcement of fundamental rights as guaranteed by the Timorese Constitution. It is aimed at those with a legal background – court actors, lawyers, legal professionais and law students – to support their access to academic level reference on the legal perspective of human rights as they relate to the Timor-Leste legal context. The innovative approach which the book takes in integrating international human rights treaties throughout its different topics can also support the increased application of international human rights law by the national courts.
