Gender on the International Bench Workshop in Oslo: March 23-24, 2017.
At present, women make up an average of 17% of the judges of international courts and tribunals. There is a significant variation in the proportion of women on the benches of different legal regimes. To better understand and assess this inequality, PluriCourts and iCourts invites papers for a workshop on gender on the international bench.
The aims of the workshop are
- to better understand the current patterns of gender diversity and inequality on these international courts and tribunals,
- to critically assess reasons to be concerned with this gender disparity, and
- to identify challenges and ways to alleviate disparities that should be changed.
We invite papers in political science and philosophy, on a range of issues.
For further information please read the full call for papers.
Please submit an abstract before January 20 to:
For political science: Daniel Naurin Daniel.firstname.lastname@example.org
For philosophy: Andreas Follesdal email@example.com
