USAID/PROLoG Co-Organizes International Conference on the Role of Women in the Judiciary

08 November 2018 USAID/PROLoG Co-Organizes International Conference on the Role of Women in the Judiciary

A full-day international conference on ‘The Role of Women in the Judiciary’ was held in Tbilisi on November 5. It involved representatives of the High Council of Justice, the Supreme Court of Georgia, judges from courts of all three instances, international organizations working with the judicial system, as well as international experts.

The discussions focused on important topics, including women’s participation in the judiciary, gender stereotyping, and the impact of gender diversity on judicial decision making. Among the presenters were experts from Georgia, Europe and the United States, including judges Renate Winter, Aneta Arnaudovska, Katica Ardukovic, and Magistrate Avril Calder.

At USAID/PROLoG’s invitation, Judge Allyson K. Duncan of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and the incoming Vice President of the International Association of Judges, participated remotely in two panels and addressed participants on the U.S. experience with implicit bias and the impact of gender diversity in judicial decision-making.

On November 6, the main speakers from the conference held a public lecture for law students on the role of women in the judiciary. Speaking at Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani Teaching University to an audience of 100 students, the presenters delivered the main points from the prior day’s conference and reinforced messages related to the equality of men and women in the judiciary and the importance of determination in reaching career goals.

USAID/PROLoG organized the conference together with the Council of Europe project ‘Support to the Judicial Reform in Georgia’ and the European Union-funded Judiciary Support Project - EU4Justice.
