Pace Law Review will be holding a symposium entitled “After Gender: Examining International Justice Enterprises” on November 12, 2010 in the New York State Judicial Institute (located on the Pace University School of Law campus). The symposium will attempt to expand our understanding of the role of gender and sex in international law. International law’s gender analysis has focused on women to the exclusion of other sexes. More recent efforts, including those in international criminal law, the United Nations, and other international organizations, have attempted a broader understanding of gender. Do these efforts continue to rely on the exclusive centrality of “women” to understand “gender?” If so, what are the costs to gender-related projects, if any? These questions demand fuller analysis – an analysis we will attempt with a series of conversations instead of the customary “talking heads” format.
Speakers will include Janet Halley, a Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, as well as dozens of other great legal minds from both within Pace Law School and around the globe as well.
