Women´s Voices in International Law
Initial Meeting to be held on 8th May 2014, SOAS (London)
Participants are sought to take an active role in the Feminist International Judgments Project. The basic idea behind the project is that participants will collaboratively re-write key judgments in their field of international law from a feminist perspective.
. . . International Law is an area notoriously dominated by male perspectives, and an increasing number of feminist scholars are expressing concern about the silencing of women’s voices in international law. . . .
The aim of the project is to re-write 12-15 key judgments in the field of international law. This project centres shared experiences in its methodology, bringing it close to the actual working practices of international courts and tribunals. We anticipate that a number of Chambers, comprised of 3-5 academics, will each work collaboratively on one judgment. Judgments will be rewritten in a variety of substantive areas of international law, such as, Reproductive Rights, International Criminal Law, Environmental Law, the Law of International Organisations, as well as others that address normative issues. These are just representative examples, and at this stage we very much welcome your suggestions about suitable judgments.
The deadline for this call is 28th February 2014
