Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This important new volume to the 'feminist judgments' projects' makes a significant contribution exploring how key judgments in international law might have differed if feminist judges had sat on the bench. This collection asks whether feminist perspectives can offer meaningful and viable alternatives to international law norms; and if so, whether than application results in distinguishable differences in outcomes. This chapter rewrites the European Court of Human Rights judgment from 2005 on Islamic headscarf bans in Turkish universities.
