Routledge research in human rights law
"The work highlights the place of the Convention in the landscape of international law and policies on violence against women and equality. The authors argue that the Convention with its emphasis on integrated and comprehensive policies has an important role in promoting equality, but they also note the debates on 'genderism' that the Convention has triggered in some member states. The book analyses central concepts of the convention, including violence, gender and due diligence. It takes up major commitments of the parties to the convention, including support and services to the victims, criminal law provisions and protection of immigrant women against violence. The book thus makes a major contribution to the development of national laws, policies and practice"-- Provided by publisher.
