By Redazioni Edizioni Simone
Le vicende che stanno recentemente interessando los angeles Comunità internazionale sembrano disattendere tali speranze: i conflitti armati si sono moltiplicati, provocando los angeles contestuale proliferazione di armi letali e di distruzione di massa, l. a. dipendenza – politica ed economica – dei Paesi deboli da quelli forti (nella forma del «neoimperialismo») è cresciuta al punto da esacerbare il malcontento dei popoli nei confronti dei poteri costituiti (non democratici o pseudo-democratici), come mostrano le sollevazioni che in questi giorni attraversano l. a. regione mediorientale (Libia, Tunisia, Egitto, Yemen, Bahrein), e continuano a riproporsi, con sempre maggiore recrudescenza, violazioni sistematiche dei diritti umani di fronte alle quali, purtroppo, l. a. Comunità internazionale assiste spesso inerme (si pensi, nel recente passato, alla strage di curdi e musulmani sciiti, al genocidio dei bosniaci nella ex Jugoslavia e dell’etnia tutsi in Ruanda, alla situazione dei profughi palestinesi e, attualmente, alle violente reazioni del regime di Gheddafi nei confronti delle manifestazioni di dissenso della popolazione civile libica).
In questo contesto, il presente quantity si propone come un utile strumento di analisi e approfondimento dei sistemi di protezione dei diritti umani operanti sia a livello universale (primariamente le Nazioni Unite) che regionale (Consiglio d’Europa, Unione europea, OSCE, OSA, Unione africana, Lega araba), offrendo un quadro dei principali strumenti giuridici internazionali attualmente vigenti ed estendendo los angeles trattazione anche alle self-discipline del diritto umanitario e del diritto internazionale penale.
Il risultato è un’opera di agevole lettura, completa e aggiornata, integrata da un’appendice normativa, che consenta al lettore di documentarsi su una materia – quella, appunto, dei diritti umani – di sempre crescente rilevanza sia all’interno dei singoli Stati che nell’odierno landscape internazionale.
