Arguing that in order to understand the way in which laws of war are implemented and promoted in international society, we must understand how gender ideas affect the principle of civilian immunity, the author provides a wealth of ground breaking case studies. Each demonstrates the importance of assumptions about gender relations in shaping international politics, and in developing a framework for incorporating an attention to gender into the often gender-blind scholarship on international norms. As such this book will be of interest both to international relations theorists and to human rights scholars, students and activists alike.
