Professor Nienke Grossman took part last week in the GQUAL Conference in The Hague. Founded two years ago at UN headquarters in New York, the group – which includes representatives of states, as well as leading scholars, lawyers, jurists and activists – seeks to raise awareness about the underrepresentation of women in virtually all international tribunals and monitoring bodies, according to the conference website.

The conference, held Oct. 3-5, 2017, at The Hague Institute for Global Justice in The Netherlands, featured discussions and workshops devoted to academic research and policies designed to increase the participation of women in international tribunals and monitoring bodies.

Grossman took part in a panel with Ana Helena Chacón, the vice president of Costa Rica, and also served as the rapporteur and organizer of a working group on how to achieve parity on the International Court of Justice.
