Written by distinguished specialists in human rights law and political science, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in the effects that regional human rights courts may produce on easily-breakable power-sharing bargains. * Michal Balcerzak, Human Rights Quarterly *
This is a well written, comprehensive and in-depth study of the use of consociationalism and power-sharing in areas with long-term conflicts. A main strength of the book is that the theme is analysed from different perspectives: theoretical, legal, comparative and contextual. * Inger-Johanne Sand, Nordic Journal of Human Rights *
