Abstract and Keywords
This chapter compares and contrasts the successes and failures of “conflict mapping” in international humanitarian law (IHL) and international conflict feminism (ICF), a phrase the author uses to refer to feminist initiatives aimed at strengthening international law and policy’s response to women’s experiences. The chapter begins by describing the IHL regime for classification of forms of conflict and the consequences of these stratifications on conflict resolution. It addresses the strategies of ICF, and the challenge it brings to the conflict maps of IHL for not adequately addressing women’s specific needs. The chapter then questions the conflict maps of ICF. It demonstrates the ways in which ICF’s approach to gender, while commendable, can also be simplistic and inadequate.
