living and the dead body, Crossland’s
work points to finer distinctions, which may operate to draw a line
between the dissected and the autopsied body. These are suggestive
of different ontologies at work,49 but also of a certain instability of
meaning associated with the dead body (or its remains), which is
subject both to continuity and difference.
In several respects, then, the developments associated with the
long dead served to interrupt the promise of closure suggested by
the TRC and exemplified in the physical acts of exhumation and
reburial. By calling

‘Case history’ on violence against women, and against women’s rights to
health and to reproductive health
Sara De Vido
The anamnesis, which in medical terms mainly consists in case history,
provides a legal analysis of around 70 decisions taken by domestic and
regional human rights courts, and UN treaty bodies, relevant for the two
dimensions at the core of the book, the horizontal, ‘interpersonal’
dimension and the vertical, ‘state policies’ dimension. The first dimension
includes cases on domestic violence, rape in peacetime and female genital
mutilation. The second dimension explores cases on abortion, involuntary
sterilisation, maternal health and emergency contraception. The chapter
examines the decisions following three axes/questions: Who are the
applicants? In which ways was women’s health relevant in the decision? What
reparations, if any, were granted? The book does not aim to elaborate a
database of jurisprudence but to reflect on legal issues arising from
selected decisions to elaborate the concept of violence against women’s
health in chapter 2.
