Centre for International Governance and Justice: News and Events

We have been enjoying catching up with Rosemary Grey recently. Rose was a recipient of a CIGJ Visiting PhD Scholarship last year and has returned to spend a few weeks at the Centre as she focuses on finalising her thesis for submission in October. A PhD candidate in the School of Social Sciences at the University of New South Wales, Rose’s research considers the prosecution of sexual and gender‐based violence at the International Criminal Court. If you missed Rose’s excellent ‘Beyond Rape’ blog on Regarding Rights when it was first published, we encourage you to read it now.

Rituals of Human Rights Law ParticipantsLast week the CIGJ hosted a major workshop on the rituals of human rights law, developing ideas raised by Hilary Charlesworth’s ARC Laureate Fellowship project “Strengthening the international human rights system: Rights, regulation, and ritualism.” With fifteen speakers from Australia, the United Kingdom, Austria, India, Canada, and the United States, the workshop examined the manifold forms of human rights law through the lens of the rituals that imbue it with meaning and the often fraught ritualism that can attend to that.
