Centre for International Governance and Justice: News and Events

On Wednesday the Centre hosted a fascinating and provocative talk from Madeleine Rees, Secretary General of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. The talk, “The dream and the reality; are our international institutions fit for purpose?” used a gender approach to critically explored the disparity between the ambitions of the international order and the reality of institutional failures.

Next week the Centre will welcome Michelle Staggs Kelsall for a two-week visit. Michelle, Deputy Director of the Human Rights Resource Centre (for ASEAN), will present a public seminar, “Making the extraordinary ordinary: the Khmer Rouge tribunal, justice in transition and the promise of a juridical legacy in Cambodia”, at the Centre on Tuesday, 2 June.
