Call for Papers: Gender on the International Bench
At present, women make up an average of 17% of the judges of international courts and tribunals. There is 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 March 23-24 2017 in Oslo, Norway. PluriCourts and iCourts are Norwegian and Danish Centres of Excellence studying international courts – more information at www.uio.no/pluricourts and http://jura.ku.dk/icourts/
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.
