Abstract

This essay reviews the power of international human rights bodies to award remedies to parties before them. The essay looks first at the duties and obligations of states to afford remedies in domestic law. It then examines the express and implied remedial powers of human rights institutions and then discusses the various types of remedies that have been afforded by different international bodies. Finally, it notes how these remedies have evolved over time and suggests possible ways in which the law may develop in the future.
