Abstract "From the mid-1990s, the Organization of the Islamic Conference promoted the adoption of an anti-defamation resolution as a means of getting the protection of Islam and Muslims from defamation and discrimination in the Western world enshrined as a new norm within the UN system. After an initial period of receptivity,support for the idea waned. The author reconstructs the course of the OIC's UN campaign between 1999 and 2011, exploring its political, historical, and human-rights context. She examines the underlying circumstances and normative clashes that prevented the norm from being incorporated into human-rights legislation." (author's abstract)
