Gender on the International Bench

Forthcoming book project edited by Andreas Føllesdal and Kristen Hessler.

At present, women make up an average of 17% of the judges of international courts and tribunals. There is significant variation in the proportion of women on the benches of different legal regimes. The book project presents perspectives from political science and philosophy addressing the current patterns of gender diversity and inequality on international courts and tribunals, the reasons to be concerned with this gender disparity, and the challenges and ways to alleviate disparities that should be changed.
