Event description

Description

Feminist international law scholarship has always insisted on showing the human faces of the state, why constructions of gender matter to the state, and which humans are excluded or silenced by gendered constructions of the state. And so the feminist question posed here is, who is entitled to make international law? This collection contains sustained analysis of women as judges in international courts, women as ‘publicists’ in the academy, and women advocates and political leaders as drivers of treaty reform. But what of the women behind the ‘state’, creating custom, driving norms as diplomats?
