Nahla Valji honoured for Significant Contributions to the field of International Gender Justice

Nahla Valji, originally from Vancouver and now based in NYC, is being honoured for her significant contributions to the field of international gender justice.

Nahla Valji honoured for Significant Contributions to the field of International Gender JusticeTo commemorate the 15th anniversary of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the upcoming 20th anniversary next year of the adoption of the Rome Statute, the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice (WI) is launching the Gender Justice Legacy Wall to be housed in the new ICC building as an installation. The Legacy Wall honours and celebrates many of those who, over the past 125 years, have contributed to the field of international gender justice as practitioners, advocates, judges, prosecutors, grassroots and other organisations, survivors, witnesses (by number for anonymity), academics, diplomats and others. The names installed on the Gender Justice Legacy Wall are representative of the disciplines which have helped to shape this work and those selected reflect regional diversity, a variety of contributions to international gender justice, as well as noteworthy and memorable developments.

Nahla will be among a handful of individuals whose name will be inscribed on the Legacy Wall when it is unveiled in 2018 during a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Rome Statute at the ICC.
