Law and Inequality
Apartheid in Southern Africa represents one of the greatest challenges, one of the greatest success stories, and one of the most frustrating defeats of the international human rights movement. This article first introduces international human rights and the in- ternational law of human rights-particularly as they relate to apartheid.Second, the article sketches the work of the Interna- tional Court of Justice, which has rendered three significant human rights decisions concerning Namibia. Having begun to dis- cuss Namibia, the article also examines the work of the Security Council, General Assembly, and other United Nations bodies con- cerning Namibia.
