Feminist engagements with fragmented international law: the case of jus post bellum
Dr Olga Jurasz, Senior Lecturer, Open University Law School (UK)
This paper explores the future of feminist engagements with international law in light of its growing fragmentation. Employing jus post bellum as a case study, this paper analyses the current status of international law’s response to the situation of women in the aftermath of modern conflicts and the place of gender within these developments. The arguments presented here are informed by three perspectives: growing fragmentation of international law, gender as a factor shaping international law, and emergence of jus post bellum - a concept of post-conflict law.
