Intersectionality in Critical Theories of International Law


The American Society of International Law’s International Legal Theory Interest Group (ILTIG), in collaboration with the Quebec Society of International Law (SQDI), is holding a conference on "Intersectionality in Critical Theories of International Law." The purpose of this conference is to explore parallels between intersectionality theory, which examines contexts where individuals suffer oppression based on overlapping grounds (e.g., gender, race, class), and critical legal theories, which seek to deconstruct the patterns of power relations embedded in legal structures. The first panel will explore "Intersectionality and Institutions," and the second will explore "Intersectionality, Human Rights and Environmental Law." The conference will be held on Tuesday, April 11th, prior to the start of the ASIL Annual Meeting, at Georgetown University, in Washington D.C.
