  • Organisation:
    International Commission of Jurists, Switzerland
  • Where:
    Switzerland and Tunisia

This PeaceNexus Grant allowed the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) to kick-start a project aimed at empowering and encouraging women judges in the Middle East and North Africa Region. The ICJ invited senior women judges and lawyers from the region to a judicial Colloquium in Tunisia and to the “2013 Geneva Forum on Women in the Judiciary” conference and published reflection papers on women judges. The ICJ strives to develop a broader programme to strengthen and advance the representation and participation of women in the judiciary and legal profession in the MENA region.
