Biografie (woord)

John Quigley represented the European Union before the Supreme Court of the United States in cases relating to foreigners under sentence of death in the United States. He initiated petitions in the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights for such persons, and argued that same issue in the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.


'This is a meticulously researched and scholarly work by an expert on consular law on what has become a serious bone of contention between the US and foreign governments. Of obvious appeal to lawyers, students of international relations will also find this book of interest.' D. Ettinger, Choice
