This research sheds light on the complexity of implications of the withdrawal and non-compliance. It analyses them with respect to the UK and Russia. Furthermore, it determines the impact of these measures on the protection of human rights on the global, domestic and regional levels.

The findings show that, on the one hand, the withdrawal and non-compliance can have significantly different impacts on the human rights protection. On the other hand, substantially disparate implications can stem from the same measures taken by various states. (Less)
