Pace Law Review Symposium on “After Gender: Examining International Justice Enterprises”

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Pace Law Review will hold a symposium on November 12, 2010 entitled “After Gender: Examining International Justice Enterprises.” The symposium will attempt to expand our understanding of the role of gender and sex in international law. International law’s gender analysis has focused on women to the exclusion of other sexes. More recent efforts, including those in international criminal law, the United Nations, and other international organizations, have attempted a broader understanding of gender. Do these efforts continue to rely on the exclusive centrality of “women” to understand “gender?” If so, what are the costs to gender-related projects, if any? These questions demand fuller analysis – an analysis we will attempt with a series of conversations instead of the customary “talking heads” format.
