A legal reckoning for the war on terror

Helen Duffy Leiden University
Saturday, November 10, 2018 - 11:57

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'.

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."

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"?

The 20th anniversary summer session of Salzburg Law School on International Criminal Law, Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Law (SLS) brought together a diverse group of students, academics and practicioners.

My Fellow Liberians: accountability is needed now more than ever

Ken Harper - Together Liberia
Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 16:21

In 2017, for the first time in history, voices of victims of the first Liberian civil war were heard in the criminal trial of Mohammed Jabbateh, aka Jungle Jabbah, a former Liberian warlord residing in Philadelphia USA. The Jabbateh trial showed that justice can be achieved without violence and it raised hope for thousands of Liberians. But the lack of accountability for grave crimes is an obstacle to peace and stability, and a potential cause for future conflict that must be addressed adequately. Now more than ever we need to make sure that Liberians are well-informed of the trials coming up outside the country.

A philosopher once said: 'there is no peace without justice'. Justice in Liberia will mean lasting peace, an assurance for stability, a deterrent to future offenders and peace of mind to victims. Let those war Lord's in Liberia and squanders be procecuted.

Forced disappearances are on the rise as human rights violators cover their tracks

Forced disappearances
Sunday, February 25, 2018 - 18:06

By Rodwan Abouharb

It seems the global campaign to protect human rights has had an unexpected side-effect: governments are changing their preferred methods of getting rid of political opponents.

Fear of scrutiny has prompted governments to switch from brazenly killing their opponents to forcing them to “disappear” – leaving their fate unclear, and helping leaders avoid accountability for their actions. The majority of disappearance cases go unsolved – in the absence of a body, forensic evidence or even...

The Kavumu trial: Complementarity in action in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Kavumu - DRC
Saturday, February 17, 2018 - 10:25

Between early 2013 and June 2016, in the village of Kavumu, a few dozen kilometers from Bukavu, the capital of South Kivu province, as many as 40 young girls whose ages ranged from 18 months to 10 years old were abducted and raped before being returned to their families. On December 13, 2017 11 Congolese militia members and a provincial lawmaker Frederic Batumike were found guilty of murder and rape as crimes against humanity. This is the story of how the women of Kavumu finally got justice.
