(p.71) 3 Fragmentation
Feminist Dialogues on International Law

Gina Heathcote

Oxford University Press

Chapter 3 examines fragmentation and provides an analysis of the fragmentation of gender law reform: practically, within institutional apparatus, and substantively, through the segregation of diverse currents within feminist and gender theories from the developments that have materialised within international law. This is a departure from the existing feminist critiques of ‘governance feminism’, focusing instead on understanding of the structural limitations of international law as vital to any critique of feminist ‘successes’. Thus, chapter 3 demonstrates the need to appreciate the role fragmentation within international law and the global order plays in constraining the potential for inclusion of diverse feminist approaches in a system which mitigates against the very possibility of structural change at the level required. The chapter concludes by emphasising a diversity of feminist approaches as necessary for feminist dialogues and as leverage for a transformative feminist politics and ethics within international law.
