HUMAN RIGHTS AND THEIR SAFEGUARDS IN THE PRIVATE SPHERE, Ineke Boerefijn & Jenny Goldschmidt, eds., Antwerp: Intersentia, 2007

Does the law offer employees, tenants and students safeguards in an appropriate way? And what is the effect of the law on the position of employers, landlords and schools? Does the law take their legitimate interests into account? For example, is the law clear enough on what people should live up to?
