The use of force in international law
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The chapter outlines the international legal prohibition of the unilateral use of force in international relations in pursuance of the maintenance of international peace and security. It considers the particular ways that armed conflict impacts upon women. It examines the self-defence exception to prohibition against the use of force and other contested exceptions – self-determination; humanitarian intervention – and argues that the gendered nature of the international regime makes it inadequate to deal effectively with the realities of their lives for women in conflict-affected societies.
