Dragan Ivetic
President, Association of Defence Counsel Practising Before the International Courts and Tribunals (ADC-ICT)
Dragan Ivetic

The ADC-ICT, as a bar association has long strived to support gender parity and equality within the legal community of practitioners before the international courts and tribunals. I am honored to uphold and advance this legacy throughout my term as President. Advocating for diversity and inclusivity in panels, conferences, and encouraging our members to be mindful of gender issues within courtrooms and defense teams are crucial initiatives. These endeavors raise awareness of discrimination and bias, fostering a more inclusive workplace culture and contribute to building a more equitable and inclusive legal community, setting an example for other international bodies.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
