Oxford Human Rights Hub Associate Director Dr Nazila Ghanea Hercock in partnership with Georgetown University SFS-Q, Koc University and Qatar University is exploring the process of ratification and domestic effects of human rights treaties in the states of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC).
There has been a recent trend in the GCC member states to ratify the core United Nations human rights treaties. Coupled with this trend are the recent reviews of and lifting of reservations to treaties already ratified.
The domestic processes leading up to ratification, reviewing of reservations and the domestic effects of these treaties on political, judicial and societal levels in the GCC countries have not received adequate scholarly attention. This project aims to address this. Please visit their website to learn more about this exciting and cutting-edge project.
