Show Summary Details


The freedom of movement and residence within States involve a multitude of concerns such as internal migration, the state of those who are displaced within States brought about by civil conflicts, and the relation economic cultural and social rights with such movement, among other such problems. Addressing these problems, however, entails imposing human rights standards for the freedom of movement and residence in varying contexts, and such requires thorough examination of what is contained in such standards. As the degree of protection that the freedom of movement receives depends greatly on the legality of its restrictions, the book has been able to look into its scope and how these are used to regulate and control the freedom of residence and entry through the following measures: monitoring and regulation, coming up with a policy that addresses racial discrimination, and other such functions.

Keywords: freedom of movement; freedom of residence; civil conflicts; human rights standards; regulation; racial discrimination
