Global Issues, Women and Justice explores the ways women seek justice through the nation-state, global process and international criminal justice mechanisms. It draws on a diversity of academic and advocate voices in examining how women have accessed justice under conditions of globalisation, militarization and colonisation. Global Issues, Women and Justice will appeal to academics and activists as a valuable resource for research and provides numerous case studies of the ways women have mobilised to achieve justice which will be useful in both the classroom and in campaigning.

This collection provides a rich and textured set of portraits of women struggling for justice around the globe. It gives feminists inspiration for their theorising and at the same time theoretical insights for their activism. - Professor Hilary Charlesworth, Australian National University
