In Gender and the Law of the Sea a distinguished group of law of the sea and feminist scholars critically engages with one of the oldest fields of international law. While the law of the sea has been traditionally portrayed as a technical, gender-neutral set of rules, of concern to States rather than humans, authors in this volume persuasively argue that critical feminist perspectives are needed to question the underlying assumptions of ostensibly gender-neutral norms. Coming at a time when the presence of women at sea is increasing, the volume forcefully and successfully argues that legal rules are relevant to ensure gender equality and the empowerment of women at sea, in an effort to render law for the oceans more inclusive.

 

This panel discussion will feature Dr. Irini Papanicolopulu, Associate Professor of International Law at the University of Milano-Bicocca and Editor of Gender and the Law of the Sea and Dr. Gina Heathcote, Reader in Gender Studies and International Law, Programme Convenor of the MA in Gender Studies and Law, and Programme Convenor of the LLM in Law and Gender Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. 

 

This event is hosted by the Women, Peace and Security program at AC4 and co-hosted by the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law at the Law School and the Columbia Water Center
