  Add to Calendar 2019-11-08 9:00 2019-11-08 18:20 Europe/Paris Gender in Law and Courts: Uneasy Encounters?

The Department of Law of the European University Institute (EUI) and the PluriCourts Centre on the Legitimacy of the International Judiciary at the University of Oslo (PluriCourts) host a one-day conference on gender and sexualities in international and European laws and courts on 8 November 2019 at Villa Salviati, European University Institute, Florence (Italy). The conference will gather critical, original and provocative perspectives on gendered tensions in the law. The event is organised by Sophia Ayada (EUI), Giovanna Gilleri (EUI), Matilda Merenmies (EUI), convened by Professor Andreas Føllesdal (PluriCourts) and Professor Geir Ulfstein (PluriCourts) and sponsored by Professor Martin Scheinin (EUI) and the Academy of European Law.

The conference seeks to gather scholars that investigate the tensions between gendered legal classifications and gendered subjectivities, and/or the influence of gender in supranational justice (or at national and/or local levels provided that the domestic aspect is discussed in relation with the supranational legal regime). It aims to stimulate reciprocal and active exchanges between professors, post-doctoral and doctoral researchers engaged with the legal aspects of gender and sexuality, who apply a critical, feminist and/or queer approach. We welcome boundary-crossing contributions from different legal fields, as well as anthropological, psychological, sociological and historical studies.

For more details see the attached programme.
