ICJ Review no. 50 (June 1993)

Document Type: Publication
Date: 1993

The purpose of the Review is to focus attention on the problems in regard to which lawyers can make their contribution to society in their respective areas of influence and to provide them with the necessary information and data.

This edition marks the 25th anniversary of the first UN Conference on Human Rights held in Tehran and was published the same year as the second UN Conference on Human Rights held in Vienna in June 1993. Over these 25 years there have been as many historical breakthroughs in human rights as genuine disappointments. The UN Conference on Human Rights took place against a background of unimaginable violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Somalia.
