International human rights law in Australian courts: A role for amici curiae and interveners
Simone Cusack and Cecilia Riebl
Alternative Law Journal
Volume 31, Number 3, September 2006

LAW JOURNAL / LAW REVIEW

Legal practitioners have under-utilised international human rights law in Australian courts. The authors argue that third party intervention, specifically the amicus curiae and intervener mechanisms, provide an opportunity to develop such jurisprudence domestically. This article considers the role and purpose of amici curiae and interveners, exploring a number of recent cases in which third party interventions have facilitated arguments based in international human rights law.

Civil Gideon: A Human Right Elsewhere in the World
Raven Lidman
Clearinghouse Review
Volume 40, Numbers 3-4, July-August 2006 p.288

LAW JOURNAL / LAW REVIEW

The right to free counsel in civil cases is widely accepted around the world but not in the United States. In England the right originated over five hundred years ago. Twelve European countries provided the poor with free lawyers even before 1979, when the Council of Europe required its members to do so as a matter of international human rights law. The standards for eligibility and scope of legal services vary, and means and merit tests are common.

A Conflict of Norms: The Relationship Between Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Law in the ICRC Customary Law Study
Krieger, H.
Journal of Conflict and Security Law
Volume 11, Number 2, Summer 2006 p.265-291

LAW JOURNAL / LAW REVIEW

It is generally accepted that although human rights law is applicable in armed conflicts the rules of International humanitarian law take precedence as lex specialis. However, uncertainties remain. Do norms with a lex specialis character override more general rules systematically and invariably, or is there room for complementarity? To what extent are human rights standards applicable in armed conflicts and in how far is the jurisprudence of regional human rights courts pertinent? The ICRC Study on Customary International humanitarian law provides a relevant example of how the normative relationship between human rights law and humanitarian law on the basis of the lex specialis rule can be conceived. The article examines this normative relationship by analysing how the Study uses the jurisprudence of human rights bodies in order to specify fundamental guarantees of humanity. The article argues that although the Study”s approach works in principle because the use of human rights law in it is basically restricted to proving the existence of fundamental guarantees problems arise, inter alia, in relation to proportionality when using force, in relation to human rights”limitation clauses and in relation to the different dimensions of human rights protection. Moreover, since concrete human rights standards depend very much on their circumstances because of the contextual techniques employed in interpretation of human rights law they can neither readily be transferred to the situation of an armed conflict nor be easily applied outside their regional context. Thus, the concrete application of the refined human rights law to interpret humanitarian law is not always as valuable as might be thought.
