              Religious Fundamentalisms and the Human Rights of Women

              Dialogue on the conflict between religious fundamentalism and women's rights is often stymied by an all or nothing approach: fundamentalists rely on a claim of absolute religious freedom, while some feminists have dismissed religion entirely as being so imbued with patriarchy as ...to be eternally opposed to women's rights. This ignores the experiences of religious women who suffer under fundamentalism and fight to resist it, perceiving themselves to be at once religious and feminist. In Religious Fundamentalisms and the Human Rights of Women, Howland provides a forum for these different scholars, both religious and nonreligious, to meet and seek common ground in their fight against fundamentalism.

              Menschenrechte sind elementare Rechte, mit denen jeder Mensch, nur weil er Mensch ist, ausgestattet ist. Sie sind Ausdruck der allen Menschen in gleicher Weise zukommenden Wurde. Sie bilden heute einen zentralen Bestandteil des Volkerrechts und der internationalen Politik und sin...d zu wesentlichen Maastaben der Kritik und der Rechtfertigung des Verhaltens staatlicher, nicht-staatlicher und gesellschaftlicher Akteure und zu einer tragenden Legitimitatsgrundlage offentlicher Institutionen geworden. Ziel dieses Buches ist es, einen sachlichen Uberblick uber die Normen und Institutionen des internationalen Menschenrechtsschutzes zu vermitteln. Ein besonderer Akzent wird auf die Verfahren, Institutionen und Techniken der Umsetzung von Rechtsgarantien gelegt. Es wird die universelle, regionale und staatliche Ebene in die Darstellung einbezogen. Das Werk befasst sich mit drei Bereichen des Menschenrechtsschutzes. Zunachst werden Normen und Institutionen universeller Natur behandelt. Schwerpunkte bilden das Menschenrechtssystem der Vereinten Nationen sowie das humanitare Volkerrecht und das Volkerstrafrecht. Es folgt eine Analyse der regionalen Menschenrechtsordnungen in Europa (Europarat einschl. Europaischer Gerichtshof fur Menschenrechte, EU, OSZE), Amerika und Afrika. Schliealich wird exemplarisch der Menschenrechtsschutz im staatsrechtlichen Bereich behandelt (Deutschland, Osterreich, Schweiz). Die Darstellung wendet sich an ein breites Publikum wie Wissenschafter und Studenten, Parlamentarier und Beamte, Mitarbeiter von NGOs und Verbandsangehorige, Journalisten und interessierte Burger, denen ein Uberblick uber das komplex gewordene internationale Menschenrechtssystem vermittelt wird.
