Words of Personal Appreciation to Erica-Irene Daes

Show Summary Details


This chapter is a tribute to Erica-Irene Daes. Dr. Daes’ place in the United Nations human rights system remains unique. Although she is perhaps particularly associated with her pioneering work on minorities, and on indigenous peoples, her works and interests are in fact of extremely wide range. In recent years they have included, in addition to all the prolific activity on minorities and indigenous peoples, important oeuvre on the individual in international law, duties to the community and limitation of rights, the protection of persons detained on grounds of mental ill-health, and new types of war crimes, among others.

Keywords: Erica-Irene Daes; United Nations; human rights; minorities; indigenous peoples; international law; war crimes
