Women's Rights as Human Rights: A Political and Social Economy Approach within a Deep Democratic Framework

  • Haider A. Khan

    (GSIS, Department of Economics, University of Denver)

In this paper we offer the social capabilities based approach to women's rights as human rights. We begin with the standard approach and discuss the universal human rights model before developing the social capabilities approach followed throughout the rest of this paper. In this paper by political economy we mean the classical state and civil society and their interactions. By social economy we mean the underlying social basis of the political economy including the family structure. Khan(1994a,b,1998,2007) presents deep democracy as a structure in addition to formal democratic apparatus such that the practice of such democratic life can be reproduced with the basic values intact. Change is not precluded. But all such changes should deepen democracy, not weaken it. Deep democracy in this sense is intimately connected with economic and social justice. We show that the social capabilities approach, women's rights and deep democracy are related in an intimate way.
