    FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS IN NIGERIA: MYTH OR REALITY? INVESTIGATING THE CONCEPT WITHIN ISLAM
    by
    WAHAB EGBEWOLE*
    TAOFEEQ ALATISE**

    Introduction

    Human Rights is an interesting and even more controversial concept. Its popular appeal all over the world demonstrates its acceptability and boundless reach. It is one of the most discussed and highly sensitive political and legal issues that emerged after the Second World War. Human Rights means many things to many people, nations, cultures and religions. Though the universal conception of human rights rooted in Western values has dominated the human rights debate, it has come under increasing criticism from other cultural and religious values. It has been argued that the modern human rights is a super-imposition of the western ideas rooted on individualism over other cultural values.

    THE ROLE OF THE JUDICIARY IN THE PROTECTION OF FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS:
    THE MALAYSIAN EXPERIENCE

    by
    LAVANIYAN NATHAN JOTHY*

    INTRODUCTION/ABSTRACT

    Human rights as a concept has evolved tremendously since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948. The Declaration has given rise to many other important human rights documents such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in 1966, the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in 1951 and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Not only did the UDHR become the catalyst for international conventions, it also found its way into many national constitutions and regional conventions, where it became the founding legal document for many aspects of state relations with its citizens. For the purposes of this article, the national judiciary of Malaysia will be the focus of our analysis on how they have decided disputes in relation to human rights questions, with specific reference to issues relating to the right of religion and freedom of expression, association and assembly within the national and international law framework.
