Women's Rights in Armed Conflict under International Law

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Laws and norms addressed to women’s lives in conflict have proliferated across the regimes of international humanitarian law, international criminal law, international human rights law and the United Nations Security. Laws and norms are implemented by separate institutions, with differing powers of monitoring and enforcement. Regime activities overlap. Women’s Rights in Armed Conflict under International Law is the first book to account for this pluralism and institutional diversity. The book identifies key aspects of how different regimes regulate women’s rights in conflict, and how they interact. The book uses country case studies to reveal the practical implications of the fragmented protection of women’s rights in conflict. The book offers a dynamic account of how regimes and institutions interact, the extent to which they reinforce each other, and the tensions and gaps in regulation that emerge. Finally, the book proposes how the regimes should interact to complement and reinforce women’s rights.
