This chapter offers a justification for separating comparative international human rights law from other related scholarly approaches, using the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) as an example. Section II attempts to isolate the field of comparative international law from other connected fields. Section III sets out the necessary and sufficient elements that define the field of “comparative international human rights law.” Section IV considers differences between this approach and the broader approach adopted by the editors in their introduction, and suggests that such differences as exist may be due to the fact that human rights, and comparative international human rights law, have features that distinguish them from comparative international legal scholarship more generally. Section V concludes.
