Alice Edwards. Violence against women under international human rights law. Cambridge University Press, 2011.

K644.E39 2011

 

Since the mid-1990s, increasing international attention has been paid to the issue of violence against women; however, there is still no explicit international human rights treaty prohibition on violence against women.  Drawing on feminist theories of international law and human rights, this critical examination of the United Nations' legal approaches to violence against women analyzes the merits of strategies which incorporate women's concerns of violence within existing human rights norms such as equality norms, the right to life, and the prohibition against torture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ronan McCrea. Religion and the public order of the European Union. Oxford University Press, 2010.

KJE5530.M38 2010

 

This book offers a comprehensive account of the role of religion within the public order of the European Union.  The author examines the facilitation and protection of individual and institutional religious freedom in EU law and the means through which the Union facilitates religious input and influence over law. Identifying the limitations on religious influence over law and politics that have been required by the Union, it demonstrates how such limitations have been identified as fundamental elements of the public order and prerequisites EU membership.
