Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of concepts discussed in the book Human Rights, State Sovereignty and Medical Ethics: Examining Struggles Around Coercive Sterilisation of Romani Women. The book examines the impact of the international human rights law framework on national sovereignty and human autonomy. It aims to make an original contribution to the study of law and society. It examines the social mobilization aspect of challenges to coercive sterilisation, in light of theoretical literature on social action and legal change. The book focuses in particular on the ability of the international human rights law framework to contribute to persons from extremely marginalized or pariah situations to seize secure and act upon their own autonomy and dignity.

Keywords: coercive sterilisation; human autonomy; international human rights law; national sovereignty; social mobilization
