Thesis title:
Re/Conceptualising Boundaries: feminist approaches to international law and the sovereign state
Internal Supervisors

PhD Research

This thesis aims to push at the boundaries/limits of feminist approaches to international law and the idea of international law as structurally biased by taking an interdisciplinary approach; particularly, but not solely, drawing on continental feminist philosophy. The test site for this project is the sovereign state, with the sovereign state being one of international law’s key (theoretical?) structures. This thesis therefore also aims to provide a more in depth analysis of the sovereign state in international law from a feminist perspective.
