Currently investigating the interrelationship between international criminal law (ICL) and human rights law (IHRL) dealing with gender-based violence. My project researches the intersection of gender and other forms of discrimination as key to operationalize the analysis of sexual and gender-based crimes. It entails bringing the approach of compounded discrimination of international human rights law (IHRL) courts and mechanisms into the gender analysis of international criminal law (ICL). As intersectionality sheds light on the causes and harms of gender-based crimes, hence, it improves the articulation of charges and enables access to justice for victims, without discrimination. On the whole, the approach brings the necessary consistency between ICL and IHRL in interpreting gender-based violence in terms of gender-based discrimination.
