Friday 11 September 2015, from 17:30 to 19:30
Location: Domus Media, Kjerka (University of Oslo)
Professor Cecilia M. Bailliet and Assistant Professor Chiara Giorgetti warmly welcome women interested in studying or practicing International Law to meet women within academia and institutions for networking and discussion of relevant careers at a Happy Hour.
We will also present the GQUAL! Initiative which seeks to promote gender parity in international bodies. At present, women are underrepresented in virtually all international bodies responsible for monitoring and developing international law within the UN and in regional organizations. Women hold only 21% of positions within the main international and regional tribunals. We will exchange ideas on the adoption of standards for best practices and improvement of representation of women.
Finally, we invite you join the blog IntLawGrrls.
Cava, wine, juice, and fruit will be served! We warmly welcome the women participants and speakers at the ESIL Annual Conference 2015 on the Judicialization of International Law: A Mixed Blessing?
We look forward to enjoying conversation with the wonderful group of women participants and speakers at ESIL!
