Event description
Women’s Rights in Armed Conflict under International Law - Catherine O'Rourke

About this event

Laws and norms that focus on women’s lives in conflict have proliferated across the regimes of international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and the United Nations Security Council. While separate institutions, with differing powers of monitoring and enforcement, implement these laws and norms, the activities of regimes overlap. Drawing on research from her book, Women’s Rights in Armed Conflict under International Law (Cambridge University Press, 2020), the seminar addresses challenges posed by legal fragmentation and the relatively weak legal status of many women’s rights norms in conflict. The seminar will illustrate these challenges through the book’s case studies of Columbia, DRC and Nepal.

The webinar has been organised and hosted by by Prof. Aisling Swaine, UCD School of Social Policy, Social Work & Social Justice With Assoc . Prof. Marie-Luce Paris, UCD Centre for Human Rights.
