4. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin: “Embodiment, Representation, and Maternality in International Institutional Spaces”. The SNF-funded project “Diversity on the International Bench: Building Legitimacy for International Courts and Tribunals”, led by Professors Neus Torbisco-Casals and Andrew Clapham (Graduate Institute, Geneva), continues to host its public lecture series on “Women’s Voices in  the International Judiciary”. The series aims to reflect on the lack of diversity in the international judiciary — especially gender diversity —, which raises concerns not just in terms of descriptive representation and symbolic self-identification, but also regarding unconscious bias and systemic privileging of specific ideologies or positions in the process of adjudication. The next lecture will feature Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism. Everyone is welcome to register here.
