Archive talk from previous human rights law page[edit]

Good beginning! Do we want to add info about the International Criminal Court to this article, as being the possibly-to-be-primary mode of enforcement? --April


Note: I'm 24.28.70.xx and NOT 24.150.xx.xx

I can't believe the scale of insult I must have visited upon you! Very sorry for thinking you were that 24. I just jumped at the opportunity to actually be able to say something nice about this person -- Oh well, I'm still waiting for the oportunity. 12.246.119.xxx

Suggestion for 24.28.70.xxx: if possible, you might want to go ahead and log in. You can have random digits or something as a nick if you wish, but at least you won't get confused for that OTHER 24 all the time. :) If you're having trouble logging in, let us know and we'll try to work out the problem.

Merging[edit]

The reason I'm suggesting a merge is that from about a year ago when I was writing the law page, I looked at what should be put as the best page to put down for the law in this field: I noticed the Human rights page was far more developed than this Human rights law page, and so I made the former the dominant link. Looking at it again, I see that nothing has developed here. Thinking on it a bit, it makes sense. When you have a right, that's only anything meaningful when it's in law, so anything that would be on a Human rights law page, would necessarily have to be treated in a thorough and detailed way in any page on a Human rights page (and vice versa). Given there is not much difference anyway between "law" and "rights" (some languages are accustomed to use the terms interchangeably, e.g. French and German) I think this page should simply redirect to what is an excellent treatment and summary on the main Human rights topic. All in favour? Wikidea23:33, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

The destination article is very long, but this article could be merged successfully as it is rather short. The main concern I would have is that you thoroughly read the dest. article to avoid repeating information. Good LuckBeeblbrox (talk) 04:29, 1 April 2008 (U

Cleanup and extension[edit]

I cleaned this up, still needs a lot of work. Please do not confuse international human rights law with international humanitarian law!! Also, most international human rights instruments already have a wikipeadia article, so its best to summarise and refer to the main article. Still needs a lot on enforcement, customary international law, jurisdiction etc. --SasiSasi (talk) 18:56, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi! I recently noticed that the human rights article has a section on International human rights law that seems more developed than this article. -Human rights#International human rights law- I'm thinking of moving that content into this article, and using the content of this article for a summary in the human rights article. (Of course, unique content could stay in the main article.) What do you think? Michael 134.84.96.142 (talk) 22:06, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

I made the change. [1] Michael 134.84.96.142 (talk) 20:55, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Overlap with Human Rights[edit]

Someone suggested that this be merged into human rights. For some background, this page is largely based on the content of that article. What would most correct with Wikipedia Summary Style would be to convert the stuff in human rights into a summary and have the "see also" redirect people here if they're more interested. So on the basis of summary style I'm going to remove the tag. I sense there would be resistance if I shortened this section in the human rights article, but I may try that as well. 173.8.110.162 (talk) 03:30, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

== Mind my rubble! ==

The main article on Human rights is a real mess at the moment, this article seems much less busy and has been lanugishing for some time, so as a preliminary to sorting out the other article I am going to go to work on this one. There may be a significant overlap and duplication of content between the two articles for a period of time. Don't worry about this as hopefully it will be resolved in time, and the articles will be cleared up. I am going to put a restructuring tag on the article as a warning Ajbpearce (talk) 21:22, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
