2019 was a busy year for the GQUAL Campaign. To date, GQUAL has successfully drawn global attention to the need and importance of women’s equal representation in international justice and the relation that exists between the lack of women in these bodies and the legitimacy and impact of international justice. It has also highlighted how under representation is linked to broader structural discrimination faced by women. The campaign has contributed to highlight the urgent need for better procedures, both at the international and national level, that ensure transparency and participation in the selection of candidates and that prioritize competence, independence, and gender balance as fundamental criteria.
Check out some of our campaign highlights from last year here.
