This volume contains the papers delivered at the seventh in a series of judicial colloquia on the domestic application of international human rights norms. The meeting was held in Georgetown, Guyana, from 3rd to the 5th September 1996. The participants were primarily judges from Commonwealth countries and from international and regional human rights tribunals. There were 30 participants, 20 from the Commonwealth and others from Africa, Asia/Pacific, Europe and North America.



Human Rights and an Emerging World Order

That is an excerpt from the best-seller Megatrends 2000, by John Naisbitt and Patricia Aburdane, published in 1988. The authors are theologians who, though they contemplated a world-wide readership at the time of their authorship, might not specifically have had in their focus the six judicial colloquia on "Developing Human Rights Jurisprudence" and the seventh here in Guyana. Nonetheless these judicial conferences can be seen as appropriate examples that justify their thesis.
