Abstract

This roundtable will explore the degree to which the law of unintended consequences renders some feminist initiatives in transnational criminal law problematic from a feminist point of view. Panelists will consider the shifting political coalitions behind international and transnational initiatives in areas such as combating trafficking in persons, responding to the practice of female genital cutting, and articulating principles of transitional justice.

Keywords: transitional justice, international criminal law, feminist theory, politics of international law
