In long-established western democracies, women have made inro as judges only during the past few decades. In post-conflict and transitional developing countries, however, they constitute an increasingly larger proportion of judges.
Why is this so? Situations of political rupture generally create new opportunity structures; some may favour the entry of women into public positions of power.
Post-conflict assistance often includes gender friendly rule of law reforms, and the conflict itself may have placed rights issues in focus. This project addresses this by exploring: What are the main pathways of women judges to the bench? What are the gendered experiences of women on the bench?
How and in what ways does having more women on the bench impact on judicial outcomes — specifically on cases involving violence against women and children? In essence, what difference do women judges make?
