One of the most basic of human rights which international law protects allows an individual to freely move around and select where he or she wants to live within States. Such protection may have originated from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, which accounts for the setting up of international standards for various aspects of human rights protection. Including such concerns as the freedom of movement both in terms of entering and leaving the State and travelling within the State entails certain justification for its advancement that such a basic and natural human right is now declared an essential for every individual. Literature about these concerns, however, is not given as much focus and importance as it should be given. This book therefore attempts to bridge the literature gap in issues of human rights and general international law.
