Public law scholarship in the UK is fracturing. Old certainties have been challenged by radical shifts in the mode of governance,an evolving European constitutionalism, the search for values in public law, and the New Labour constitutional reform agenda. The core concepts and the future role of public law have become contested territory.;Feminist scholarship can provide public lawyers with the critical tools and insights to respond to these new challenges. This collection begins a dialogue between public law and feminism by offering a range of perspectives on contemporary public law themes and topics.;This book will be essential reading for students and researchers in the fields of public law, political theory and feminist studies.
