1. Essex Public International Law Lecture Series Lecture: About the Universality of Public International Law in the Year 2021 and in the Years to Come. The Convenors of the Essex Public International Law Lecture Series (Dr Meagan Wong and Dr Emily Jones) are hosting the  opening lecture for the 2021-22 academic year on Monday 25 October by Professor Pierre-Marie Dupuy, Emeritus Professor at the University of Paris (Panthéon-Assas) and Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, entitled ‘About the Universality of Public International Law in the Year 2021 and in the Years to Come’, chaired by Dr Meagan Wong, School of Law, University of Essex.

2. Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi  “Gender Perspective at the ICC: Legal Principles and Institutional Impact”: 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 monthly 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 sixth lecture will feature Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi, President of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), and former President (2015 – 2018) and Judge (2010 – 2018) of the ICC. Register here.
