“Re-Thinking”: Creative Feminist Perspectives on International Human Rights Law


Creative Feminist Perspectives on International Human Rights Law


Law plays an important role in constructing and reproducing THE truth. By reading legal texts through different glasses we seek to explore hidden aspects of international human rights law. At the seminar we will be discussing the international law on human rights and the implications regarding migrant/asylum-seekers, LGBT-rights, female rape victims and human trafficking.




Cecilia Mörner – Vulnerability in Human Rights Law – the Example of Migrants/Asylum-seekers


Sara Bengtson – Gendering in Human Rights Law: On LGBT Rights in an European Context


Azaliah Mapombere – Myths Surrounding Rape and the Female Rape Victim


Lynn Pasterny – The Perfect Victim in the International Response to Human Trafficking (Lund University, Faculty of Law) The seminar will be conducted in English.


Join Us!

The seminar topics were the highly actual matters of vulnerability in human rights law regarding migrants and asylum seekers, the gendering in human rights law on LGBT rights in a European context, the myths surrounding rape and the female rape victim and last but not least, perfect victim in the international response to human trafficking. The speakers’ knowledge about historical and current decisions from various European courts and their ability to both challenge the framework and to Re-think the structures with creative feminist perspectives was appreciated and discussed in depth with the audience. It became very clear through the seminar that feminist perspectives are essential to achieving Human rights  law. Feminist Dialog wishes to thank: Cecilia Mörner, Sara Bengtsson, Azaliah Mapombere and Lynn Pasterny. A recap of the seminars will soon be published.
