##Human rights in world society. The global institutionalization of women"s rights and their implementation in Germany, Switzerland, and Morocco
In the last few decades human rights have become increasingly institutionalized, legalized, and enlarged. Women"s rights are a particularly successful example of the global institutionalization of human rights. After reconstructing the institutionalization of women"s rights at the global level this article compares their implementation in Germany, Switzerland, and Morocco. The three case studies show that the link between the global and the national levels, is weaker than a neo-institutional world-polity approach would expect.##
