Current research

Feminist International Judgments Project

Loveday Hodson is one of the conveners of the Feminist International Judgments Project. This project is a unique venture in which legal scholars are collaborating in the ‘real world’ task of (re)writing key international judgments from a feminist perspective, in order to address the silencing of women’s voices. The (re)writing of judgments demonstrates in accessible and meaningful ways possible alternatives to the structural inequalities of traditional international law.
