Gqual: Changing the picture of international justice

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Two years ago, the Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) came together with representatives of States, renowned scholars, lawyers, jurists, activists and international organizations, including IDLO, to launch the Gqual campaign at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Gqual campaign seeks to raise awareness about the under-representation of women affecting virtually all international tribunals and monitoring bodies. Many of these institutions play key roles in developing international law, human rights, international relations, and cooperation. Since then, GQUAL has grown into a leading platform advocating for gender parity in international justice.

On the second anniversary of the campaign, GQUAL is convening a diverse group of people from all over the world for a series of lively and engaging discussions and workshops that seek to shape academic research and policies slated to increase the participation of women in international tribunals and monitoring bodies. The goal is to approve an Action Plan that will build upon the strategies found in the GQUAL Declaration and effectively #ChangethePicture of International Justice.
