Title

Women’s Rights and Customary Law in Namibia: A Conflict between Human and Cultural Rights?

Description

"The starting point for this article was research conducted on the tension between cultural rights and gender equality within the Human Rights and Documentation Centre (HRDC)3 of the University of Namibia’s Faculty of Law in 2007 and 2008. The following paragraphs demonstrate that the legal framework relating to gender-sensitive issues in Namibia is wide-ranging on national, regional and international levels. Some of these legal instruments take up the potential conflicts between women’s rights and customary law by aiming to achieve gender integration and equality" BAB Working Paper 2010:02 Presented at the Basler Afrika Bibliographien. 15 July 2010
