6 Feminist theory A feminist approach to international law is based on the same principles that underpin feminist theory at a domestic level. Feminist theory at the international level thus contends that the structure, actors and processes of international law fail adequately to take into account females and are inherently skewed towards a male gender bias. Feminist theory in relation to the international field has only gained significant traction since the early 1990s,120 although feminist activism in the international sphere has been long established.

The reason why pacta sunt servanda presents only one answer to this question is that it provides but one theoretical framework for an understanding of how international law operates: certainly the predominant post-Westphalian model. Of course, predating this period it was possible to talk about the importance of the development and control of international law by different entities, including protectorates and empires, let alone the extensive political and legal control exercised by the Church.

85 This differs from the realist approach which divorces internal domestic matters from the factors that affect how a state will act in the international sphere. 3 realism and liberalism as alternatives The interplay between international law and politics became particularly pronounced during the Cold War. During this period, theories were advanced by scholars from both the United States and the USSR, which had the effect of justifying these political regimes’ own respective and opposing ideologies.
