  • Community Perspectives and Pathways to Reintegration of Survivors of
           Sexual Violence in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo
    • Abstract: Sexual violence has gained international recognition as both a serious human rights problem and an international security issue. Because of the considerable academic work, international activism, and policy debates cultivated in recent years,1 it is increasingly apparent that victims (or survivors) of such violence often suffer various long-term medical and psychological problems resulting from the abuse.2 Victims also report to suffer because of their communities' negative attitudes and stigmatization, leading to family and community rejection of the victim and creating difficulties in finding a husband (or wife).3 Sexual violence can therefore have destructive effects well beyond the battlefield, and threaten the ...

  • The Gentrification of Human Rights
    • Abstract: "A very popular error: having the courage of one's convictions; rather it is a matter of having the courage for an attack on one's convictions."There is an ongoing trend within academic human rights circles that depicts the so-called, and much celebrated, "age of human rights" as giving way to a state of crisis. Other human rights academics dispute this depiction and remain optimistic about the capacity of human rights to realize its promise. Human rights optimists point to the existence of a robust and comprehensive body of international human rights law and also point to the apparent weaknesses and contradictions of the pessimists' arguments.1 If the fate of human rights was entirely dependent upon resolving ...

  • Should National Human Rights Institutions Institutionalize Dispute
           Resolution'
    • Abstract: Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is an umbrella term that captures a wide range of processes designed to resolve a dispute or complaint.1 It can refer to agreement-based dispute resolution (for example, conciliation, mediation, and settlement negotiations) as well as processes such as arbitration, where third party decision-makers reach decisions outside of the traditional court system. ADR can be used instead of, prior to, during, or following litigation. ADR plays a prominent role in resolving disputes in many jurisdictions, particularly in areas such as commercial arbitration and family mediation.2 In Europe, the entry into force of the ADR Directive,3 the Mediation Directive,4 and the Online Dispute ...

  • The Human Rights of Children in Tobacco Control
    • Abstract: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), tobacco is one of the largest preventable causes of death, disease, and impoverishment and is amongst four behavioral risk factors linked to noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer.1 According to WHO estimates, approximately seven million people die each year from tobacco-related diseases: six million die due to tobacco consumption and 890,000 non-smokers die due to exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS).2 Public health research demonstrates that tobacco use and exposure to SHS lead to increased risks of, among others, cancers, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, impaired reproductive health, obstetric complications, and sudden death of, and low birth weight ...

This mandate includes an authorization for the African Court to exercise jurisdiction over cases and disputes relating to the interpretation and application of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights,2 the African Court Protocol, and any other relevant human rights instrument ratified by the states that have accepted its jurisdiction.3 Where the Court finds a violation of "human or peoples' rights," ...

  • Intersectionality, Transitional Justice, and the Case of Internally

    • Abstract: Over the past four decades, violence has become a way of life in Mindanao resulting in scores of people experiencing immense suffering. In the words of the Transitional Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC), the independent body charged with formulating recommendations for a post-conflict agenda in the Bangsamoro, "[i]ncidents of violent conflict and systematic discrimination and exclusion have become a collective experience and memory. The people of the Bangsamoro are poor and tired and they want peace."1 Internally displaced Moro women are amongst the most marginalized people in Filipino society. They have suffered in similar ways to Moro men as a result of armed conflicts, but have also endured distinct ... Read More

    • Abstract: Despite a flourishing body of literature on transitional justice that makes plain the "growth of the cultural icon of the victim,"3 little is known about the differences amongst the victims of gross and systematic human rights violations. Victims are often perceived as a "single group,"4 regardless of glaring contrasts amongst them insofar as background, capabilities, and transitional justice needs, interests, and expectations. This article argues that generic, or anecdotic, descriptions of victims, which homogenize5 them and impede an understanding of victimized individuals as political subjects, contributed to this state of affairs. Furthermore, recognizing that "how we think about victimhood is of primary ... Read More

  • Bringing Willingness Back in: State Capacities and the Human Rights
           Compliance Deficit in Mexico
    • Abstract: Perhaps the key question in current international relations debates on human rights relates to the conditions under which states are more likely not only to commit to, but also to comply with international norms. In principle, the existence of a broad and highly institutionalized international human rights regime, and the activism by transnational and local advocates surrounding this regime, should be generating a positive effect on the levels of respect for human rights practice demonstrated by states. The levels of formal commitment to the regime's norms have grown consistently and transnational advocacy has not ceased to exert pressure on rights-violating governments in an attempt to dissuade their unlawful ...

  • Judicial Independence and Civil Liberties in Transitional Democracies: The
           Case of Kenya
    • Abstract: The development of civil liberties forms an integral part of any recipe for democratic change. As a collection of inalienable rights almost invariably entrenched in the legal and constitutional framework of any modern liberal democracy, civil liberties are crucial pillars that support the institutions of democratic governance.1 Nonetheless, the functioning of democratic institutions differs widely from one political system to another, both in spatial and temporal terms. While most national constitutions expressly affirm or at least make some mention of civil liberties, their realization in practice varies considerably across cases.2 Following several centuries of institution building and practice, some democracies ...

  • Intersectionality in the Human Rights Legal Framework on Violence against
           Women: At the Centre or the Margins' by Lorena Sosa (review)
    • Abstract: This book is about international human rights norms with respect to violence against women. It is specifically concerned with finding norms relating to intersectionality to understand how vast or sparse is the protection against gender-based violence suffered not merely because of gender, but also because of race, color, ethnicity, religion, region, class, disability, sexual orientation etc. The book engages with this aim via three courses—first, setting out the theoretical and practical implications of intersectionality for violence against women; second, gauging how far these are incorporated in international human rights law; and finally, analyzing case studies of intersectional gender violence.Lorena Sosa opens ...

  • In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most
           Vulnerable Workers by Bernice Yeung (review)
    • Abstract: Journalistic forays into nonfiction have become increasingly popular and, at times, effective in reaching audiences unfamiliar with important social topics.1 In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers2 presents as a tentative excursion into this form of first-person literary nonfiction on a topic fraught with stigma—workplace sexual violence against immigrant women in the United States. Overall, there are serious flaws in the work, primarily in its lack of analytical depth. However, it is certainly much more than a collection of anecdotes, and I would count it worthy of inclusion on the shelf of workplace violence and public policy.Author Bernice Yeung is a ...

  • Building a Treaty on Business and Human Rights: Context and Contours ed.
           by Surya Deva & David Bilchitz (review)
    • Abstract: Are the nations of the world ready for a treaty on business and human rights'For many countries—the United States and Russia, for example—the answer is clearly no. Other states—notably Ecuador and South Africa—are diplomatically committed to a treaty. Another large group remains on the fence; which way they fall will depend on how ambitious the treaty is, and on how effectively they are pushed, one way or the other, by business opposition and by civil society support.At this writing, the question is as timely as it is unanswerable. In 2014, on the initiative of Ecuador, supported by South Africa and prodded by a broad, global coalition of civil society organizations, the United Nations Human Rights Council—a ... Read More

  • The Right to Say No. Marital Rape and Law Reform in Canada, Ghana, Kenya
           and Malawi ed. by Melanie Randall, Jennifer Koshan, & Patricia Nyaundi
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book explores the issue of sexual assault in marriage. According to the World Health Organization, one in three women who have been in a relationship report that they faced some form of "sexual and/or physical violence perpetrated by a husband or other male intimate."1 Despite this alarming number, many countries today do not have the legislation in place to adequately criminalize sexual assault in intimate relationships.2 In fact, for centuries women who were sexually assaulted by their spouses had no legal recourse at all.The purpose of the book is to offer a contribution to fill the legal and research gap around marital rape and to stimulate an international conversation on this important, but too often ...

  • Not Enough: Human Rights in an Unequal World by Samuel Moyn (review)
    • Abstract: This fascinating and erudite volume is an intellectual history with an agenda. The history is of the idea of equality. The agenda is to persuade human rights activists and scholars to pay more attention to contemporary world inequality. Samuel Moyn would like lessened inequality, though he does not specify precisely what level of inequality he could tolerate, or how he hopes that level could be achieved. Only in his conclusion does he state that material equality means "a ceiling on the wealth gap between rich and poor."1 Perhaps inadvertently, he does not include income inequality in his definition, yet it is now a major contributor to inequality as a whole.2 In 2015, the chief economist of the World Bank noted ...

  • From Selma to Moscow: How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign
           Policy Sarah B. Snyder (review)
    • Abstract: The history of human rights, perhaps surprisingly, emerged relatively recently as a field of scholarly inquiry.1 Historians began publishing widely on the topic only in the past decade and, as historian Barbara Keys noted, scholars of US foreign relations have been "among the most avid" contributors to fill the void in this burgeoning field.2 Sarah Snyder became one such pioneer in 2011 when she published her first book, Human Rights Activism and the End of the Cold War: A Transnational History of the Helsinki Network.3 In that volume, Snyder examines how non-state actors used the passage of the Helsinki Act of 1975 to promote a human rights agenda as a central element in East-West diplomacy, which helped lead to ...

  • National Human Rights Action Planning by Azadeh Chalabi (review)
    • Abstract: As discussed so very well in this timely and original book by Azadeh Chalabi, the rapid development of human rights law and norms has been "spectacular" since the middle of the last century. The founding of the United Nations both brought about and was premised on a paradigm of human rights. This was a new framework deigned to advance a global governance that not only melded the fractures caused by the world wars, but advanced a cooperative multilateralism that worked toward a humanity rooted in the dignity and prosperity of all peoples. Human rights instrument followed human rights instrument in an effort to advance these ideas. Lackluster translation of these lofty ideals into practical realities, however, meant ... Read More
