Human rights are moral principles or norms that describe certain standards of human behavior, and are regularly protected as legal rights in national and international law. Today, human rights have become a subject of intense discussion, not only in international level but also in national jurisdiction. Every country whether developed or developing, expresses genuine concern over
promotion  and realization of human rights. The world will not easily accept an in human  treatment in any context, which seriously undermines even legitimate security operations.
The right to life, the basic right, is being denied to millions by the continued war, occupations and the sanctions policy, implemented by the United States in Iraq. Iraqis in general and Iraqi women in particular are the victims of such violations. This book is an attempt to examine the human rights violations in Iraq. It also aims to look into the rights of women and opens new
avenues in the field of human rights and the need of protection of women's rights across the world. The book will give valuable insight to researchers, academics, NGOs and human rights activists, and policy makers interested in human rights and women rights.
