Operationalizing the Comparative International Human Rights Law Method: A Case Study of CEDAW in National Courts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

In this chapter, I focus on how the example of CEDAW illustrates the methodological and conceptual difficulties that future work in comparative international human is likely to encounter. Despite the challenges, I suggest that the worked example of CEDAW has raised interesting lines for empirical analysis, and additional perspectives which may enrich normative inquiry, sufficient to justify comparative international human rights law being regarded as likely to give rise to insights that might not otherwise have emerged, and therefore to be as an approach worth pursuing in the future.
