This chapter discusses the sources of international human rights law set out in Article 38(1) of the Statute of the International Court of Justice: treaties, custom, general principles of law, and, as subsidiary means for determining the law, judicial decisions and the teachings of publicists. It then considers the role of ‘soft law’ instruments, such as resolutions of the UN General Assembly and the work of human rights expert bodies.
