An analysis from the gender perspective of students and professors from the last 5 years of IISL

27 Oct 2020 17:22 | Izabela Zonato Villas Boas

This is an initial analysis of gender at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (IISL), which will be divided into 3 parts: students; professors; and AJA award winners.

  • Students
    • 2019/2020 – 9 students, 7 women (78%), 2 men (22%);
    • 2018/2019 – 8 students, 5 women (63%), 3 men (37%);
    • 2017/2018 – 13 students, 8 women (62%), 5 men (38%);
    • 2016/2017 – 12 students, 4 women (36%), 7 men (64%);
    • 2015/2016 – 23 students, 8 women (35%), 15 men (65%);
    • All students: 65 students, 32 women (50%), 32 men (50%).

It is possible to understand that between 2015 and 2017 the number of women was lower than that of men. However, from 2017 to 2020 the number of women is higher than that of men. Therefore, the total number of students in the last 5 years shows a balance where half are women and the other half are men.

  • Professors
    • 2019/2020 – 18 professors, 8 women (44%), 10 men (56%);
    • 2018/2019 – 16 professors, 7 women (39 %), 9 men (61 %);
    • 2017/2018 – 17 professors, 8 women (47%), 9 men (53%);
    • 2016/2017 – 15 professors, 4 women (27 %), 11 men (73 %);
    • 2015/2016 – 15 professors, 3 women (21 %), 12 men (79 %);
    • All professors: 81 professors, 30 women (37 %), 51 men (63 %).

It is important to inform that the total number of teachers refers to the sum of professors, where, for example, Professor Ulrike Schultz appears 5 times for being present in all years of the analysis.

Given this metric, it is possible to verify that between the years 2015 and 2017 the number of female professors was less than 30%. Between 2017 and 2020 there was an increase in the number of female teachers, but it is still lower than the number of male professors who always exceed more than 55%.

  • André-Jean Arnaud Prize winners

It is important to mention that the prize was created to celebrate André-Jean Arnaud (AJA), the first director of the International Institute for Sociology of Law, who passed away in 2015. The prize is actually a symbolic distinction given every year to the student having produced the best Master Thesis of the IISL.

  • 2019/2020 – Mariana Vivian Motta, from Brazil;
  • 2018/2019 Maria de los Angeles Ramallo, from Argentina;
  • 2017/2018 – Pamela Teutli Elizondo, from México;
  • 2016/2017 – Florencia Radeljak, from Argentina;
  • 2015/2016 – Arianna Jacqmin, from Italy.

Therefore, it is possible to note that, in the last five years, since the creation of the prize, only women have been winners. In addition, all of these women are from Latin languages, and four of them are Latin American.

PS: The information collected regarding the number of students and prize winners was collected on the IISL website. Information on the number of professors was collected from posters for disseminating the courses (with the help of dear Susana Arese).
