The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention: Commentary and Guide to Practice

The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention is the first comprehensive review of the contributions of this important institution to understanding arbitrary detention today. The Working Group is a body of five independent human rights experts that considers individual complaints of arbitrary detention, adopting legal opinions as to whether a detention is compatible with states’ obligations under international law. Since its establishment in 1991, it has adopted more than 1,200 case opinions and conducted more than fifty country missions. But much more than a jurisprudential review, these cases are presented in the book in the style of a treatise, where the widest array of issues on arbitrary detention are placed in the context of the requirements of multilateral treaties and other relevant international standards. Written for both practitioners and serious scholars alike, this book includes five case studies and a foreword by Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu.

Ms Narmin Ibadova and Ms Bota Jardemalie will also participate to this book presentation. Ms Narmin Ibadova is the niece of Mr Huseyn Abdullayev, former member of Parliament of Azerbaijan, political refugee in Germany since 2013, jailed in Baku since April 2018 after having been kidnapped in Istanbul. Ms Bota Jardemalie, herself a lawyer, is the sister of Iskander Yerimbetov, whose immediate release has been recently ordered by the UNWGAD. Both Huseyn Abdullayev and Iskander Yerimbetov are defended by Mr Jared Genser.
