Human Rights and Domestic Violence
Darren Hawkins and Melissa Humes explain why western hemisphere states rapidly adopted policies to combat domestic violence in the 1990s. They develop a twostage model in which domestic politics drives early adopters and international socialization prods followers to action. Leader states possess autonomous women’s groups and domestic windows of opportunity, follower states are relatively weak or unstable, and nonconformist states are wealthy and stable but lack autonomous women’s groups or domestic political opportunities.
