In the lecture, Professor Chappell reflects upon the first decade of the Court’s operation and evaluates the extent to which it has lived up to its promise to promote gender justice. The ICC has an innovative mandate that includes the most advanced articulation ever, under international law, of crimes of sexual and gender based violence and groundbreaking procedures to allow the victims of these crimes to seek redress.
Professor Chappell is SPSS-IASH Visiting Fellow at University of Edinburgh (August - December 2013). She is a Professor in the School of Social Sciences and a member of the Australian Human Rights Centre at the University of New South Wales where she is completing a four-year Australian Research Council Future Fellowship on the gender mandate of the ICC. She has published a number of articles in the area and is in the process of completing a research monograph on the ICC for Oxford University Press.
