Jurisdictional Relations between Human Rights Instruments and Organs

Show Summary Details


The potential conflicts in supervision and implementation of human rights is virtually unlimited. Conflicts can arise when two organizations claim to have competence over a particular matter, and when one organization which lacks competence over a particular matter encroaches upon the domain of the competent organization or of a State. This chapter discusses clauses for avoidance or reduction of conflicts, the Human Rights Committee, the interrelationship between the regional and the global supervisory systems, and the reporting systems.
