Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book Human Rights, State Sovereignty and Medical Ethics: Examining Struggles Around Coercive Sterilisation of Romani Women. The realization or implementation of international law in a domestic legal order depends on a range of factors at domestic level. As a catalyst of human rights change, even a powerful international law entity such as the European Court of Human Rights is only as strong as the ability of networks of domestic actors - including the judiciary, civil society, government and other authorities - to respond to its requirements. Globally, human rights are absorbing the oxygen of every other liberation ideology in the field at lightning speed. Finally, the book concludes with a plea to examine more deeply the continuing influences of eugenics and related ideologies on medicine, social policy and law.

Keywords: civil society; European Court of Human Rights; government; international law; judiciary; medicine; social policy
