Biography

Associate Professor Tina Dolgopol has published in the fields of human rights, children's rights and women in armed conflict. From 1997 to 2000 Ms Dolgopol participated in the work of the Women's Caucus for Gender Justice to improve the gender provisions in the Statute establishing the International Criminal Court as well as the Rules of Procedure and the Elements of Crime Annexes to the Statute.  During December 2000 she was one of the Chief Prosecutors for the Women's International War Crimes Tribunal held in Tokyo.  She is on the Advisory Council of the Women's Initiatives for Gender Justice, an organisation that seeks to ensure that the workings of the International Criminal Court encompass the rights and concerns of women.  Ms Dolgopol is a co-author of the Law Society of South Australia's submission to the Human Rights Consultation.
