A Nordic Approach to Promoting Women's Rights within International Law: Internal v. External Perspectives

New article from Professor Cecilia Bailliet in the Nordic Journal of International Law Vol. 85 (368-394).

This article explores whether there is a Nordic approach to women's rights within international law, juxtaposing internal and external perspectives in order to identify dilemmas and remaining challenges. Recognition of the Nordic contribution to the drafting of the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) is contrasted with present day issues which complicate enjoyment of rights. The complexity of formulating a Nordic feminist foreign policy and the appointment of Nordic women as creators of international law is explored.
