The Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy of the Graduate Institute, Geneva (IHEID) announced open registration for Diversity in aid of legitimacy of international arbitration?, which will be held on April 26, 2021 at 12:30 PM EST (6:30pm CEST).

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 lectures will run from March 2021 until Spring 2022. The third lecture will feature Professor Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler, who will deliver a presentation titled “Diversity in aid of legitimacy of international arbitration?”.

The lectures are open to the broader public, but registration is required for attendance. Registration is available here. For more information on our project and events, click here.

Dr. Amina Adanan of Maynooth University Law Department is organizing two online events this year, as part of her project on the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC) funded by the Royal Irish Academy. The aim of the project is to bring together UNWCC scholars from all over the world in an international collaborative network.

The UNWCC, which operated from 1943-48, was a UN agency that supported localized prosecutions of international crimes committed during the Second World War. The work of the UNWCC gives an insight into substantive and procedural international criminal law in the post war period. Since 2017, the UNWCC Archives have been made available to the public online. However, the UNWCC and its importance to modern day international criminal law remains overlooked and under explored.

The first of these virtual events is a workshop on May 28, 2021. The online workshop is an opportunity for UNWCC scholars to present on any aspect of their UNWCC research and receive feedback on their work from the other experts and attendees in a constructive environment. Presentations will be 10-15 mins and the event will include keynote lectures by leading scholars on the UNWCC. 

Submissions should be composed of a single pdf or Word doc file, and should include: the applicant’s name and institutional affiliation, an abstract (max. 300 words), key words (max. 5), and ‘UNWCC workshop’ in the email subject line.

Submissions should be emailed to amina.adanan@mu.ie by April 20, 2021. Please click here for more information.
