Now Available: Working Paper by IHRLC at the University of California, Berkely on Achieving Gender Parity on International Judicial and Monitoring Bodies
Ahead of the GQUAL Conference, the International Human Rights Law Clinic at the University of California, Berkely published a research paper that explores the international legal basis for gender parity outside of the CEDAW framework.
The document identifies and analyzes complementary international human rights law standards pertinent to the GQUAL Declaration found in the UN Charter, selected international human rights treaties, UN resolutions, and policy statement. Moreover, it serves as a companion to a separate analysis of the application of CEDAW to the Campaign, strengthening the international human rights legal basis for the GQUAL Declaration.
Key findings of the paper were presented at the GQUAL Conference by Laurel Fletcher, Director of the International Human Rights Law Clinic. You can read the full paper here.
