Go On! makes note of interesting conferences, lectures, and similar events.

Webinar logo

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.
