Justice for conflict-related sexual violence remains a critical problem for global society today.

This ground-breaking book addresses pressing questions for ‘international justice’: what do existing approaches to international justice offer to victims of war and societies in conflict? And what possibilities do they provide for feminist social transformation?

The Justice of Humans develops a new feminist approach to ‘international justice’. Adopting a socio-legal perspective, it studies two major contemporary examples of legal and feminist approaches to justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the Women’s Court (former Yugoslavia), focusing on their treatment of sexual violence as a gender-based crime.

Drawing on feminist social theory, legal analysis, and empirical research, the book offers an innovative feminist framework for understanding ‘international justice’ and offers new theoretical and practical strategies for building feminist justice.

Professor Campbell will be joined in the discussion by Professor Jelke Boesten and Professor Rachel Kerr who will offer their perspective on the themes and issues raised and consider how it relates to broader issues of addressing and responding to gendered violence.
