About the product

The protection and promotion of women's human rights is a critical area of concern worldwide. The United Nations has played an important role in bringing international attention to this issue. This study takes you inside the Asian and the pacific region and focuses on three main areas: the reception of the general normative standards on gender equality in international law in national constitutions and international monitoring; limitation of constitutional approaches and the relevance of substantive and domestic laws; and the special problems of women and violence.
