Don’t be silent! There are so many of us

Sigrid Kaag - Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Netherlands
Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 06:59

Dutch Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Sigrid Kaag, made a strong argument against populism, during an annual lecture in September, in honour of Holocaust survivor Abel Herzberg. "We increasingly notice that parts of society are susceptible to half-truths, manipulation, fake news", she said. She drew a comparison with the Weimar Republic - Germany just after World War I - where democracy was overthrown by increasingly radical parties. Kaag also said that she is regularly confronted with her Dutch identity as a person married to a Palestinian man. She regularly has to explain that her daughter is really her daughter, just because she looks 'different'. "Sometimes, because of my marriage and career, I am treated as a foreigner in my own country. And then I wonder: who decides that? Who is the Dutch foreign national, and who is not. In the stereotype I often clearly belong, and more painfully, my children too."

A legal path to justice emerges for Myanmar

Rohingya refugees in refugee camp in Bangladesh, 2017.jpg
Monday, October 8, 2018 - 15:33

The UN Human Rights Council in Geneva voted in September 2018 for the establishment of an evidence-gathering mechanism to provide accountability for gross human rights violations in Myanmar. Sean Bain of the International Commission of Jurists argues that this can complement existing or potential national and international justice systems, be that of the ICC, foreign courts with jurisdiction, or later in Myanmar, or a mix of these options. He says this is an important foundation for effective accountability which deserves support.

“The Men Who Killed Me” 2.0 project: Understanding sexual violence in conflict and empowering its survivors 

Candles for Rwanda
Monday, October 8, 2018 - 12:02

Ten years ago, the book “The Men Who Killed Me” was published.  It gave 17 of the survivors of sexual crimes during the genocide in Rwanda (16 women and one man) a stage upon which they could share their photos, harrowing experiences and narrative with the world. Now, in light of the upcoming 25th commemoration of the genocide in 2019, it is the survivors’ wish to put forth an updated edition of the book to show how their lives have unfolded in the past decade.

A legal reckoning for the war on terror

Helen Duffy Leiden University
Monday, October 1, 2018 - 12:57

Helen Duffy, professor of human rights and humanitarian law at Leiden University, and director of Human Rights in Practice, uses case studies, especially of litigation she has worked on, to illustrate the challenges and impact of 'strategic human rights litigation' - a growing area where lawyers increasingly use courts and other bodies to protect human rights of individuals by holding states to account. One of her cases recently made the news when alleged high level Al Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah won against Lithuania in the European Court of Human Rights over torture he experienced as part of the CIA's rendition programme in the 'war on terror'.

Rome Statute drafter: No one at the time thought we would have a functioning ICC in only 20 years

Judges of the International Criminal Court
Friday, September 28, 2018 - 14:41

There are many summer schools that bring together students and academics. Salzburg Law School started its first summer school 20 years ago, and held its last one just as the International Criminal Court celebrates 20 years since it was founded via the Rome Statute. One of the organisers looks back at the event in Salzburg and forwards to ask participants what needs to happen to "revitalise the international justice project"?
