Very graphic and disturbing at some parts, so keep that in by: Few topics of international law speak to the imagination as much as international immunities.

Questions pertaining to immunity from jurisdiction or execution under international law surface on a frequent basis before national courts, including at the highest levels of the judicial branch and before international courts or tribunals.

Introduction. Human rights are constructed by multiple actors acting simultaneously within the given political and legal structures, and challenging and changing them in the process.
