Genocide & Human Rights Webinar Series - Gender and International Responses to Genocide

In the fifth and final session in the Winter 2021 Genocide and Human Rights Webinar Series from the Zoryan Institute, Grant Shubin of the Global Justice Cente looks at the role of gender in the commission and international responses to genocide. In particular, how perpetrators use and exploit gender norms to increase the destructive impact of their attacks and the international community's blind spots to gendered aspects of genocide prevention and prosecution, with the Rohingya genocide as a case study.

Grant Shubin is the Legal Director of the Global Justice Center where he leads GJC’s programs on achieving gender equality through the rule of law. His work focuses on bringing feminist legal interpretations to ensure justice for sexual and gender-based violence and access to sexual and reproductive health and rights.
