What legal obligations do states have to prevent gross human rights violations under human rights law? At the moment, it is unclear what types of obligations states have at different points in time, when they are triggered, what concrete measures they may require and how they apply outside a state’s territory. Nienke van der Have sets out to systematically assess the content and scope of obligations to prevent gross human rights violations, focusing specifically on torture, arbitrary death and genocide.
