Book description

As an instrument which addresses the circumstances which affect women's lives and enjoyment of rights in a diverse world, the CEDAW is slowly but surely making its mark on the development of international and national law. Using national case studies from South Asia, Southern Africa, Australia, Canada and Northern Europe, Women's Human Rights examines the potential and actual added value of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women in comparison and interaction with other equality and anti-discrimination mechanisms. The studies demonstrate how state and non-state actors have invoked, adopted or resisted the CEDAW and related instruments in different legal, political, economic and socio-cultural contexts, and how the various international, regional and national regimes have drawn inspiration and learned from each other.

Reviews

'… this is an extremely valuable and rich book … very much in the forefront of a dynamic interpretation of the CEDAW Convention, which hopefully extends the work of the CEDAW Committee. The authors and editors of the book provide us with useful tools for further development of the Convention. This book deserves the attention of the larger community - including NGOs, at national, regional and international levels - that works with the CEDAW Convention in practice.'
