La CEDAW negli USA e il ruolo del diritto amministrativo: elogio della tecnica dei piccoli passi… che risuonano nel silenzio assordante
Abstract: The CEDAW in the USA and the role of administrative law: praise of the technique of the short steps… that resonate in the deafening silence – The Convention on the Elimination of All forms of discrimination against Women was
ratified by the great majority of the Countries in the world, but not by the US. Some reasons are ideological, while other ones are partially rooted in legal grounds. All of them are normally not shared by the legal doctrine, but at present the political opposition to ratification of the Treaty is very strong. Notwithstanding this, among the American administrative authorities – especially at the local institutional level – an interesting movement (gradually but increasingly) leads toward the concrete implementation through best practices of the principles and values expressed in the CEDAW. Therefore, its possible ratification in the next future – which is still seen as a desired step – may be considered nowadays not as a starting point but as the symbolic finish line of a complex process.
