Abstract: Participants in the Feminist International Judgments Project have brought to a small group (a judgment-writing chamber) their individual feminist perspectives on international law and have sought to apply their knowledge and method to a highly collaborative judgment (re)writing process. In departing from academic convention and exploring the possibilities and limitations to be found in the collaboration and compromise of writing judgments (rather than focusing on individual viewpoints), participants have had their perspectives constantly challenged. In this paper, I explain how this project has foregrounded shared experience in its methodology, thereby making an important connection between feminist theory and methodology. The practical challenges and solutions that participants faced in collaborating on their judgment-writing are also explored.
Las participantes del Proyecto Internacional de Sentencias Feministas han aportado sus perspectivas feministas individuales sobre leyes internacionales a un pequeño grupo (una cámara de redacción de sentencias), y han procurado aplicar su conocimiento y métodos a un proceso muy colaborativo de reescritura de sentencias. Apartarse de las convenciones académicas y explorar las posibilidades y límites de la colaboración y el compromiso de escribir sentencias han supuesto un constante desafío a los puntos de vista personales de las participantes. En este artículo, explico cómo dicho proyecto ha traído a primer plano la experiencia compartida en metodología, creando una importante conexión entre teoría y metodología del feminismo. Asimismo, se explican los desafíos y las soluciones de tipo práctico que se encontraron las participantes.
