Abstract

Human rights have always been an important issue worldwide. It is an honor for National Taiwan University College of Law to have Professor Nowak, a former UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, to provide an overview on the creation of the World Court of Human Rights. Based on the historical context, Professor Nowak discusses the rationale behind the creation of the World Court of Human Rights and provides eight reasons for the need for its creation. In response to the issues raised by Professor Mab Huang and other participants, Professor Nowak further explains the jurisdiction of this court and suggests ways in which Taiwan may participate in this regime if created in the future.
