Lack of women judges in international tribunals “unjust”

21 September 2015

The lack of women judges working in international courts and tribunals is unjust.

That’s according to Viviana Krsticevic, Executive Director of the non-profit Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL), who attended a recent event at the UN in New York.

CEJIL is supporting the GQUAL or Gender Equal campaign, which tackles the under-representation of women in the justice system.

Siobhán Garside asked Ms Krsticevic why gender parity in international bodies is important.
