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, is happy to announce its 6th lecture of the series on October 25 at 6:30PM (CEST).
This lecture, “Gender Perspective at the ICC: Legal Principles and Institutional Impact” will be led by Dr. Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi, President of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and former President (2015 – 2018) and Judge (2010 – 2018) of the ICC.
The lecture 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.
Although the main lecture will be in English, participants will be welcome to submit questions in Spanish in the Q&A portion. To register for this event, click here.
