Eithne's research intersects the areas of international criminal law, feminist legal theory, sexual offences and children born of sexual violence in conflict. Her PhD thesis examined the role of consent in an international criminal definition of rape. Eithne is particularly interested in feminist strategies in international criminal law and the extent to which developments at the international criminal level might bear relevance to domestic law on sexual offences.
