UCLA Law Visiting Jurist Tzili Mor examines the intersecting effects of feminist legal approaches, international human rights law, and health on lived realities. She draws on her international practice experience to bring applied feminist legal solutions to shape discourse and reform agendas on gender and women’s human rights. A forthcoming publication tackles Feminist Legal Reform and the Health Impact of Legal Systems Premised on Notions of Women as Communal Gauges of Honor. On-going work dissects the impact, including the unintended adverse consequences and gaps in impunity, of international legal developments on national legal systems in the context of gender-based violence and related abuses of subordination.
