We will hold the academic seminar “Contemporary Perspectives on Gender and Sexuality in International Law: A Critical Seminar”  which aims to provide an overview of the critical issues and themes that have engaged scholars analyzing international law from different feminist, queer or gendered, and human rights perspectives. It is meant to enhance a rich discussion of the critical topics and emerging issues of international law when theories, methodologies and approaches involving sex and gender jump into the scene. Thus, a criticial revision of international law history, theory and practice dealing with complex topics of gender equality, sex discrimination, multicultarism, health and religion is sought through the lenses of feminist and queer approaches. It will also be explored how gender and sexuality have advanced international law scholarship giving way to new avenues of research.

Organized by: The Faculty of Law of the University of El Rosario, Colombia, and the International and Comparative Law Program of George Washington University Law School, USA.
