‘MEDDLING OUTSIDERS’? HARMFUL TRADITIONAL PRACTICES, PACTA SUNT SERVANDA, AND THE DILEMMA OF HUMAN RIGHTS PRACTITIONERS

  • Leonardo Soares Nader

Resumo

The article looks into the difficult debate regarding the legitimacy and lawfulness of interventions against so-called ‘harmful traditional practices’, seeking to expose international law practice regulating culture, tradition and belief against the background of rights. The article explores the legal and moral objections against human rights interventions on issues of harmful traditional practices, and argues for an emphasis on positive legal obligations as a legitimate basis for outside intervention.
