    On November 17, 2020, Dr. Valerie Oosterveld spoke in the CFLS lecture series on an in-depth UN Women-funded study she undertook with a small team focused on the Special Court for Sierra Leone. She used the insights gained from that study to illustrate international criminal law’s progress in understanding the role of gender in international crime, as well as highlighting both familiar and unexpected obstacles to this progress. She concluded by considering the current state of gender justice within the ICC.

    Revolutionary Feminisms Book Launch - Recording

    In this timely and unique book, Brenna Bhandar and Rafeef Ziadah trace forty years of anti-racist feminist thought by interviewing key revolutionary thinkers. Collectively, these interviews with leading scholars trace the ways in which Black, Indigenous, post-colonial and Marxian feminisms have created new ways of seeing, new theoretical frameworks for analysing political problems, and new ways of relating to one another. At this online event on October 14, 2020, we heard from the book’s authors and three of the interviewees: Avtar Brah, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, and Avery Gordon.

  • Environmental law in the age of climate disruption

    In the spring of 2019, Professor Jocelyn Stacey gave her keynote address at the annual Women in Law event. The address queried what it means to do environmental law well in the age of climate disruption. It emphasized the relevance of environmental law to women in law – both women lawyers and community leaders. This blog post is a modified version of the keynote address.
