ArbitralWomen is pleased to share that several of our members have been appointed to the Permanent Court of Arbitration (“PCA”). Most recently, on 14 July 2020, Haiti appointed Rose Rameau, an ArbitralWomen Board member. There, she joins fellow ArbitralWomen members Eva Kalnina (appointed by Latvia on 28 March 2017), Sitpah Selvaratnam (appointed by Malaysia on 25 May 2019), and Ana Stanic (appointed by Slovenia on 6 August 2019). The PCA was established in 1899 and has grown to be an intergovernmental organisation with 122 contracting parties. In addition to their role in dispute resolution, Members of the PCA are part of the national groups that are entitled to nominate candidates for election to the International Court of Justice, and are also entitled to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize.
