Chapter 11: Gender, counter-terrorism and international law

Jayne Huckerby


International law’s doctrinal and institutional responses to terrorism are rarely canvassed for their gendered character and impacts. The first part of this chapter outlines and charts the shifts in how gender has featured in international law responses to terrorism. The second part draws upon feminist critiques of international law to provide an account of the erasures and manifestations of gender in both the practice and discourse of counter-terrorism and national security at the international level. The third and final part examines more closely recent developments in international responses to terrorism that seek to integrate the promotion of gender equality as a component of such responses.
