Are borders only georgaphic? A case study of whether framing of women’s rights as human rights is successful at the domestic level
Unformatted Document Text:  Framing women’s rights as human rights 2 Abstract This paper examines framing as an essential strategy used by women’s rights NGOs at international and domestic levels. After exploring the strategies to facilitate the implementation of the Platform for Action, which were presented in detail at the Beijing+5 session of the United Nations, the author demonstrates why the frame of women’s rights as human rights, which is actively used on the international arena, can be problematic at the domestic level. Using a theoretical analysis of transnational advocacy networks by Keck and Sikkink (1998), this paper examines why frames, which are essential political strategies of women’s rights NGOs, should have alternatives to the existent women’s rights as human rights frame. The author argues that at the domestic level the issue of women’s rights need to be presented in greater detail rather than the existing human rights frame allows it to be and thus should be reframed.

Abstract
This paper examines framing as an essential strategy used by women’s rights NGOs at
international and domestic levels. After exploring the strategies to facilitate the implementation
of the Platform for Action, which were presented in detail at the Beijing+5 session of the United
Nations, the author demonstrates why the frame of women’s rights as human rights, which is
actively used on the international arena, can be problematic at the domestic level.
Using a theoretical analysis of transnational advocacy networks by Keck and Sikkink
(1998), this paper examines why frames, which are essential political strategies of women’s
rights NGOs, should have alternatives to the existent women’s rights as human rights frame. The
author argues that at the domestic level the issue of women’s rights need to be presented in
greater detail rather than the existing human rights frame allows it to be and thus should be
reframed.
