Feminist Reflections on the Responsibility to Protect

Hilary Charlesworth

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This paper offers a feminist analysis of the responsibility to protect principle. It outlines some themes in feminist scholarship in international law and then uses these to explore the idea of a responsibility to protect. The paper argues that, despite some resonance with feminist concerns, the doctrine has been developed in a limited context, effectively privileging male elites and masculine modes of reasoning.
