englischFrom an interdisciplinary perspective, this book analyses the definition of gender in the Rome Statute with regard to the question of whether sexual orientation and gender identity are included in it. On the basis of this analysis, its author shows that although sexual orientation and gender identity are human rights, both elements are not included in the definition. Moreover, she shows that this lack of protection needs to be redressed because persecution based on sexual orientation and gender identity is comparable in its gravity with the grounds for prosecution already codified in the Statute, and subsequently proposes some ways in which this failing could be rectified.

»Eine differenzierte Studie, die am aktuellen Stand der Genderforschung für notwendige Klarheiten und Perspektiven sorgt.«
