GQUAL is a global campaign that seeks to promote gender parity in international bodies. The campaign aims to encourage the presentation and appointment of qualified women in international courts and other bodies by publicizing the current lack of gender parity within these mechanisms, growing a large pool of support for parity, disseminating information regarding available positions, creating awareness of the key role of States in presenting and supporting women candidates, and fostering transparency behind selection processes as well as the enforcement of guidelines meant to guarantee gender equality.
