This volume contains the papers presented at the Eighth Judicial Colloquium of the Domestic Application of International Human Rights, held in Bangalore, India on 2730th December 1998. This meeting marked the culmination of a series of colloquia started a decade earlier. Participants at the Colloquium were drawn primarily from among senior judges of the higher courts of several South Asian countries Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and from other Commonwealth countries Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. Several lawyers from the Commonwealth were also involved in the discussions. As with previous colloquia, this meeting focused on the subject of the domestic application of international human rights norms, and the extent to which these interrelate with national standards for human rights protection.



Domestic Application of International Human Rights Norms and Access to Justice: The Bangladesh Experience

On 10 December 1998, the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was observed all over the globe. This celebration reaffirmed our faith in the protection of human rights and in upholding the universal values of liberty, dignity, freedom and security of all of humanity, without any discrimination based on race, religion, colour or sex. The judicial colloquium held immediately following the anniversary of the Universal Declaration was therefore very timely and of great significance.
