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 21 countries of the former Soviet Union use different frames at the domestic level and introduce these frames at the international level. Conclusion The theory of Keck and Sikkink (1998) offers an interesting way to look at the issue of women’s rights as human rights as an overall framework. Successful on the international level, this framework can face challenges at the domestic level. The tactics presented in the theory by Keck and Sikkink can be useful for reframing the issue of women’s rights in these countries to better present NGO efforts to the publics at the domestic level. Although Keck and Sikkink present framing as a broader concept (strategy) and discursive activities, politics, as more narrow concepts (tactics), the analysis in this paper shows that sometimes the usage of the overall framework as a basis for all discursive tactics can be less successful at the domestic level if the framework is not fully accepted by the publics. Thus, some further development of how to use Keck and Sikkink’s framing strategies and tactics at the domestic level as well as further analysis of the relations within the networks themselves is needed.

Framing women’s rights as human rights
21
countries of the former Soviet Union use different frames at the domestic level and introduce
these frames at the international level.
Conclusion
The theory of Keck and Sikkink (1998) offers an interesting way to look at the issue of
women’s rights as human rights as an overall framework. Successful on the international level,
this framework can face challenges at the domestic level. The tactics presented in the theory by
Keck and Sikkink can be useful for reframing the issue of women’s rights in these countries to
better present NGO efforts to the publics at the domestic level. Although Keck and Sikkink
present framing as a broader concept (strategy) and discursive activities, politics, as more narrow
concepts (tactics), the analysis in this paper shows that sometimes the usage of the overall
framework as a basis for all discursive tactics can be less successful at the domestic level if the
framework is not fully accepted by the publics. Thus, some further development of how to use
Keck and Sikkink’s framing strategies and tactics at the domestic level as well as further analysis
of the relations within the networks themselves is needed.
