About My Work
My research examines international dimensions of gender equality and women’s rights norms, and their contestation in international legal, regulatory and policy sites. In this work, I have explored international law and policy making on women’s international human rights in various UN arenas, as well as the international responses, including criminal prosecution of conflict-related violence against women. My current research takes up these themes in two different ways. In collaboration with colleagues in Africa and Canada, I am conducting two studies (with SSHRC and GrOW [IDRC/DfID/Hewlett Foundation funding]) of women’s livelihoods in artisanal and small-scale mining in six African countries, exploring the gendered dynamics of national and international governance reforms of resource extraction, particularly in relation to ‘conflict’ minerals.
