Governing Sexuality by Carl Stychin

Book Description

Governing Sexuality explores issues of sexual citizenship and law reform in the United Kingdom and Continental Europe today. Across western and eastern Europe,lesbians and gay men are increasingly making claims for equal status, grounded in the language of rights and citizenship, and using the language of international human rights and European law. This book uses same sex sexualities as a prism through which to explore broader questions of legal and political theory concerning democratic legitimacy; rights discourse; national sovereignty and identity; citizenship; transnationalism; and globalisation. Case studies are widely drawn: from New Labour's sexual politics in the UK to the decriminalisation of same-sex sexualities under pressure from the EU in Romania; to new civil solidarity laws in France.

Books By Author Carl Stychin

Sexuality and the Law by Carl Stychin Sexuality and the Law, Paperback (March 2007)

'Rediscovering' the peculiarity of feminist perspectives, rather than examining the range of gender-oriented analyses, in the area of legal regulation and sexuality, this work avoids the 'reductionist' and 'essentialist' shortcomings of 'feminism unmodified'. It also addresses themes such as: crime; the family and child; jurisprudence; and more.

Law's Desire by Carl Stychin Law's Desire, Hardback (October 1995)

In this much needed book, Carl Stychin provides a critical examination of the relationship between law and sexual orientation in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada.
