- Non-hegemonic feminist theories and activism
- Contextualised approaches to cross-border feminist praxis that challenge notions of universality
- The effects of increased transnational neoliberal policies on gender-related and feminist issues

- How does transnational legal feminism intersect with the body of literature called “transnational law”?
- What could a new transnational legal feminist approach entail?
