Thesis title:
‘Women, Gods and Cyborgs: Pushing at the Limits of International Law and the Global Order’
Internal Supervisors

PhD Research

Emily's work aims to push at the boundaries/limits of feminist approaches to international law and international law’s structural biases by applying French-inspired feminist philosophy, psychoanalysis and posthumanism. Her work thereby, in turn, aims to test the limits of these theories when applied to various contexts.

Emily’s thesis analyses, in reference to the above: international human rights law, the role of global corporations in international law and the global order and Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS).
