Matthew Neuhaus

Gender equality is a core Australian value, and should also be a core value of the international rules-based order we all strive for.  Both in our Indo-Pacific region and globally, we need to ensure gender equality not only because it makes for better lives, but also for a better world.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Reach out to and engage at least 3 colleagues from the Indo-Pacific to join the International Gender Champions – The Hague.

  • Actively promote the Australian-launched Women in International Law (WIL) network in order to build gender equality across international legal bodies by organising an event on a pressing gender equality issue.
