For feminist international law scholars, practitioners, and advocates, the first two decades of the new millennium have produced moments of elation and disenchantment. In the Research Handbook on Feminist Engagement with International Law, a network of scholars and practitioners from a diverse group of countries contemplate the future of feminist engagement with international law.

Can international law increase its relevance, beneficence, and impact for women in the developed and developing world? How can international law deal with a much wider range of issues relevant to women’s lives than it currently does? What are the next frontiers for gender and international law making, law reform, and the beneficiaries of international law? The diverse global contributions to this Research Handbook delineate a future where feminist engagement with international law is robust, diverse, inclusive, influential, and leads to positive change in women’s lives. 

The Research Handbook addresses larger themes of feminism and international law that will interest international law and gender studies scholars as well as HDR students. Additionally, this exploration will prove to be an asset to UN and INGO networks, regional organizations, and NGOs and social movements.

The book will be formally launched at the 27th ANZSIL Conference by Professor Dianne Otto from the University of Melbourne. The book’s editors, Associate Professor Susan Harris Rimmer (Griffith University) and Kate Ogg (Australian National University) will discuss the contributions the publication makes to international law scholarship.
