Engaging Peace and Power: Feminist Judgments in International Law

Leicester, United Kingdom

9 October 2019

The book Feminist Judgments in International Law, is the result of a collaboration of a vibrant group of scholars and activists who have rewritten famous intentional law judgments from a feminist perspective. The editors Loveday Hodson and Troy Lavers will discuss how this project came about and what constitutes a feminist judgment. They will also use the case of the Lockerbie bombing (of the International Court of Justice) as an example of a rewritten judgment which relates to international peace and security issues. Feminist contributions to peace are substantial and the rewriting of judgments is a way to show how feminist methodologies can be applied to any international law judgment to achieve a more 'peaceful' result.
Wednesday, 9 October 2019 (4:30-6:30 pm, tea and coffee from 4:15 pm)
Speakers: Troy Lavers and Loveday Hodson
