Featured Resource List

Kirsten S. Rambo. Trivial complaints : the role of privacy in domestic violence law and activism in the U.S. Columbia University Press, c2009.

K3263.R36 2009

 

This book explores the historical relationship between privacy and domestic violence through an analysis of litigation and activism. The discourse of privacy incorporates presumptions about race, class, and sexuality, and this volume examines the ramifications of such assumptions for victims and activists. The book begins with an analysis of courts' and activists' responses to domestic violence during the late nineteenth century and continues through to the late twentieth century, when the modern battered women's movement emerged on the heels of the battle to secure abortion rights. Rambo explores the seemingly contradictory yet often complementary ways in which the discourse of privacy has been shaped by both movements seeking justice for women. She further examines concepts of privacy as applied to same-sex relationships and domestic violence, and ultimately considers alternative models of privacy that are egalitarian and rooted in empowerment.

This book provides a systematic and comprehensive study of the implications of International Human Rights Law and Standards (IHRLS) for children deprived of their liberty. It addresses the legal requirements regarding arrest, detention, and imprisonment of children set by international and regional human rights treaties and pays close attention to the role of children’s legal status. This study offers specific guidance on the interpretation and implementation of relevant provisions of IHRLS. Its detailed recommendations clarify important steps towards the realization of the rights of children deprived of their liberty around the world.
