Abstract

This article is an introduction to an Albany Law Review Symposium. International human rights standards are often circumvented with the claim that domestic laws reflect cultural practices, and that to the extent that international norms conflict with cultural practice, they are to be given little or no weight in regulating domestic matters. This article provides an over view of the articles in this issue of the Albany Law Review which provide an understanding of the problem of violence in international law.

Keywords: International Human Rights, Violence
