Chapter 13: Gender on the international bench
In this chapter, I lay out a research agenda for studying gender on the international bench, beginning with a discussion of the normative arguments raised related to increasing women’s presence on international courts and tribunals. I then highlight empirical findings from research on domestic courts around the world that may have implications for the study of international judicial institutions. Specifically, I focus on four areas of research: gender and decision-making norms, court culture and leadership, deliberation and oral arguments, and intersectionality. The chapter concludes by identifying several obstacles that have hindered systematic research into gender and international courts and offering examples of innovative research that has promise for overcoming these obstacles.
