GQUAL Campaign Conference in The Hague.

From 3 to 5 of October, 2017, the GQUAL Campaign held a Conference in The Hague.  The event counted with the participation of  foreign dignitaries, academics, students, arbiters, members of international human rights tribunals, commissions and other bodies, among others, and culminated with the adoption of the GQUAL Action Plan to promote gender parity in international justice.

In the coming years, it is expected that this document will serve as a road map and a call for action to motivate, inspire and inform all those who take part in the campaign.  Meanwhile, we’d like to share with you some of our conference resources and memories.
