Abstract

This comment sets out the challenges and possibilities of the conflict and post-conflict milieu for women and offers some reflections on how international law interfaces with it. Some views are also offered on how feminist theory and practice can help shape our response to collective violence to advance women’s rights and accept women’s needs in situations of complex communal violence.

Keywords: Conflict, Feminism, Transitional Justice, Security Council, Violence
