"This book addresses a current dilemma in the operationalization of human rights norms at state, regional and international levels, namely, the apparent failure to deliver the projected human rights benefits and protections to individuals on the ground. The chapters are drawn from Africa, Europe and Asia and constitute a compilation of micro-level studies which marry gendered understanding about people's local experiences, problems and practices in a continuous dialogue with evolving human rights principles"--Back cover, p. .
