Ruth Rubio Marín is Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Sevilla as well as member of the Faculty of The Hauser Global Law School Program at New York University. Her research represents an attempt to understand how public law creates categories of inclusion and exclusion around different axis including gender, citizenship, nationality and ethnicity. Professor Rubio is the author of over 40 articles and author, editor and co-editor of 8 books (plus two in press). She is currently working on the book The Disestablishment of Gender in the New Millennium Constitutionalism. As a consultant and activist, Rubio has worked for several national and international institutions and agencies including with the UN and the EU, and has extensive in-country experience in dealing with reparations in post-conflict societies, including in Morocco, Nepal and Colombia. Her image will be included in the Legacy Wall to be installed in the new building of the International Criminal Court in The Hague to honor her lifelong commitment to gender justice.

Ruth Rubio Marín’s lecture is part of a two-day conference entitled “Transitional Justice, Truth-telling, and the Legacy of Irish Institutional Abuse” supported by the ILA, Office of the Provost, Irish Studies Program, The Jesuit Institute, The Boston College Law School, and the Center for Human Rights and International Justice.
