The shared history and socio-cultural values of various societies and peoples in different regions of the world commend the establishment of regional human rights systems. While the regional protection of human rights started off on a generally weak note, they have since become very important players in the global system of human rights. They serve as a critical complement to the work of international system to advance the cause of human rights. Dinah Sheldon and Paolo Carozza recognise and affirm this reality in this second edition of their book, Regional Protection of Human Rights.
