Chapter Summary

One of the important problems or difficulties which international human rights law is facing relates to the issues of enforcement, implementation and respect of the multitude of human rights formulated in various international instruments. This is the introductory chapter of the book, which argues that international law in general, and human rights law in particular, if functioning adequately, provides a unique space for such an open-minded, unbiased encounter and dialogue. However, working methods and attitudes adopted by lawyers in modern international legal framework are simply inadequate, sometimes even dangerous for the promotion of this dialogue. The feminist literature on womens human rights which can be categorized as internal critiques despite a multitude of approaches has one characteristic common to all its categories. The book describes the principal reproaches made in the feminist literature to the actual status of womens human rights in international human rights law.
