Introduction : rewriting decisions from a perspective of human rights integration

Abstract
As a political and ethical project, human rights are one, indivisible and universal. As law however, they are fragmented: found in a multitude of different legal sources, several of which have their own monitoring bodies, each with their own dynamic. Some scholars have proposed a ‘World Court of Human Rights’ as a means to realize the fundamental unity of the human rights project in international human rights law.1 The present project however, intends to show that even within the current fragmented landscape of international human rights law, it is possible to ‘integrate’ human rights to a significantly higher degree than is generally the case. The book introduces concrete and innovative proposals for a holistic (‘integrated’) approach to supranational human rights justice through a hands-on legal exercise: the rewriting of decisions of supranational human rights monitoring bodies. The scholars who participated in this project have thus redrafted crucial passages of landmark human rights judgments and decisions. In addition to the rewriting exercise, authors have outlined the methodology and/or theoretical framework that guided their approaches and explained how and why, in their opinion, human rights monitoring bodies may adopt an integrated approach to human rights law.
