In progress, a human rights text for Central Asia

Greetings from Kyrgyzstan!
I am serving here in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan's capital, as Deputy Director of the Tian Shan Policy Center and Law Professor at the American University of Central Asia.
I would so appreciate the sage comments of IntLawGrrls readers on this Table of Contents, for the international law cases/materials book I'm helping law faculty here in Kyrgyzstan put together. The book (cover below) is 500+ pages, so I'm not sending that along.
When the book is published, it will be available for free to supplement teaching by faculty and student legal education in Kyrgyzstan and other Central Asian countries, where they have no such resources and almost no books.
The Table of Contents gives you a sense of the excerpts of cases/materials we are including by topic – some picked for their relevance to the region.
We could only include International Court of Justice and international tribunal documents, United Nations materials, and a few articles, because copyright from some publishers is just too expensive.
We would welcome anyone to take a look and let us know, at michelletleighton@yahoo.com, if you think any thing is glaringly missing, we'd all be very grateful. If you have articles you've written that we can excerpt, as well, please let me know and we'd be happy to include.
Warm regards to all!
