International Gender Justice Dialogue
Are our international institutions and processes adequately protecting the rights of women? From April 19 to 21 gender experts, feminist legal theorists, peace mediators, legal practitioners, jurists, women’s rights advocates, policy makers, members of the media, and activists will weigh in on this urgent question and launch a shared global agenda to achieve gender justice.
The International Gender Justice Dialogue, hosted by Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice and the Nobel Women’s Initiative, will look at how to strengthen accountability for gender-based crimes through mechanisms such as peace negotiations and the International Criminal Court (ICC). With delegates from Iraq, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Palestine, Israel, Uganda, and the Central African Republic, the dialogue will spotlight gender justice issues emerging from conflict situations. The International Gender Justice Dialogue will set the stage for the 10-year Review Conference on the Rome Statute and the International Criminal Court (ICC) in May and will likely play a critical role in shaping the future of the ICC.
