Exiled from the Province of Care: Domestic Violence, Duty and Conceptions of State Accountability
G. Kristian Miccio
University of Denver Sturm College of Law
Rutgers Law Journal, Vol. 37, No. 111, 2005
In Exiled, Professor Miccio poses and answers the difficult question as to who shall be responsible for abatement of male intimate violence against women - and she does this by constructing a dialog between conceptions of justice and conceptions of care. Miccio deconstructs theories of individual and collective duty in order to reconstruct a new theoretical and practical paradigm for notions of justice where care is at the center. In keeping with her prior works, Professor Miccio uses key cases, including the U.S. Supreme Court case, Town of Castle Rock v Gonzales, and draws from political and moral theory to craft a practical paradigm that places accountability at the core of public policy designed to protect the lives and rights of battered women and their children.
