Go On! Diversity on the Legal Bench Lecture Series

The SNF-funded project “Diversity on the International Bench: Building Legitimacy for
International Courts and Tribunals
”, led by Professors Neus Torbisco-Casals and Andrew
Clapham (Graduate Institute)
, has launched a monthly public lecture series on “Women’s
Voices in the International Judiciary”
. The series aims to reflect on the lack of diversity in the
international judiciary —especially gender diversity
—, which raises concerns not just in
terms of descriptive representation and symbolic self-identification, but also regarding
unconscious bias and systemic privileging of specific ideologies or positions in the process of
adjudication.

The fourth lecture in this series will be presented by Ms. Catherine Marchi-Uhel, head of IIIM Syria. Her lecture is entitled, “How does our commitment to equality and non-discrimination increase our legitimacy as international judicial or accountability actors in supporting justice for the victims irrespective of their age, gender, religion, culture, sexual orientation, health or other personal characteristic?”

This lecture will be on May 17, 2021 on Zoom at 6:30PM (CET). Click here to register for this lecture.
