Spacialities of (In)Justice: Exploring Alternative Sites of Gender Justice in Post-Conflict Transition
Whether the prioritization and recreation of juridical space in the form of the women’s hearing is a move toward contextualized accountability for crimes against women or yet another site for the reproduction of entrenched legal hierarchies in the international sphere.
CGS Research Excellence Award
Historically, domestic, ad hoc, and international criminal tribunals have failed to prosecute gender-based crimes despite a call from feminist international legal scholars for the international criminal tribunal to become a constitutive space for the pursuit of gender-justice. The project will explore whether the legitimacy of the international criminal courtroom is being contested and reimagined in the ever-illusive search for “gender justice.”
Meeting with women’s human rights organizations that advocate for gender justice, analyzing past women’s hearings, and exploring the possibility of future women’s hearings in post-conflict settings.
