Description

Women’s Rights in Armed Conflict under International Law examines the protection of women’s rights in armed conflict under international humanitarian law, international criminal law, international human rights law and the United Nations Security Council. Through a series of case studies (DRC, Colombia, Nepal) and emblematic violations, the research identifies and proposes several opportunities to strengthen the legal status of specific protections to women’s rights; to improve how key institutions comply with and implement their own guarantees of women’s rights; to improve coordination amongst key institutions; and to maximise the strengths of different monitoring and enforcement procedures in order to enhance the overall protection of women’s rights in conflict under international law.

This event will feature a roundtable discussion with high-level experts from the fields of women’s rights, international law, and transitional justice. Confirmed speakers include:

Hosted by the Transitional Justice Institute at Ulster University and the Political Settlements Research Programme at Edinburgh Law School.
