Two years ago, the Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) came together with representatives of States, and internationally renowned scholars, lawyers, jurists and activists, to launch the GQUAL Campaign at UN Headquarters in New York City. Our goal was 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. 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.
