Victims of the Russo-Georgian War want to see high-level perpetrators punished

Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 10:40

Nika Jeiranashvili of the Open Society Georgia Foundation recently sat down for an interview with Justice Hub’s Janet Anderson in The Hague to talk about, among other things, why the ICC’s investigation into Georgian situation is special: “It represents the first time that the ICC has stepped outside Africa or that it will be the first time that the court will deal with an international conflict,” he said. This piece is a write-up of their conversation and is published here as part of Justice Hub’s #MyJustice series.

Bertha von Suttner: The inspiration behind the Nobel Peace Prize is getting her due

Saturday, November 11, 2017 - 06:16

Why is it that women's voices appear so rarely when discussing the history of peace movements and international law? One academic is championing efforts to celebrate the extraordinary life of a giant of the peace movements of more than 100 years ago - Bertha von Suttner. . She was not only the first woman to be solely awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, she’s also widely credited for inspiring Alfred Nobel to include a prize for champions of peace among the prizes provided for in his will. A lifelong pacifist, Bertha also wrote several books that championed the cause of peace activists worldwide. At a time when women were expected to be seen and not heard, Bertha was recognised as an outspoken leader in the peace movement. Yet, despite her gender-defying achievements and intellectual contributions, Bertha has been given short shrift in the tellings of history.

It's so important to remember courageous women like Bertha von Suttner. I hadn't heard of her and her achievements until in 2009 Hillary Clinton specifically requested the very same hotelroom where Bertha held her salon more than hundred years before.

It triggered the rediscovery of this famous peace activist in The Hague and the city of Peace and Justice is finally honouring her legacy, with the statues in the Peace Palace at least. I vote for a street named after Bertha von Suttner!

Outreach in the Hissène Habré trial was an exercise in winning hearts and minds

Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 11:48

By Justice Hub

Some things are impossible until they happen. Hissène Habré, the former Chadian dictator, evaded justice for almost three decades. Many of his victims had lost hope that he would ever be brought to justice let alone that it could happen on African soil. But the impossible did happen and Habré will now spend the rest of his natural life in a Senegalese jail thanks to a sentence passed by the Extraordinary African Chambers or Chambres...

Genocide, Responsibility and the ICJ

Thursday, February 5, 2015 - 11:15

This week's decision by the Hague-based International Court of Justice in the claims made by Croatia and Serbia on genocide during the 1990s has raised many questions. Justice Hub consulted expert Olivier Ribbelink, Senior Researcher at the TMC Asser Institute in The Hague, who has written on the ICJ's work and asked him to explain further what the decision meant.

Thank you Justice Hub and thank you Janet Anderson for this informative article. The questions are very important and has made it very clear that the crime of genocide has a very high threshold 'mens rea' element; this element must be met to substantiate the crime.

The ICJ in Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Serbia and Montenegro) considered the standard of proof per the following:

"The Court has long recognized that claims against a State involving charges of exceptional gravity must be proved by evidence that is fully conclusive. It requires that it be fully convinced that allegations made in the proceedings, that the crime of genocide or the other acts enumerated in Article III have been committed, have been clearly established.

The same standard applies to the proof of attribution for such acts.In respect of the Applicant’s claim that the Respondent has breached its undertakings to prevent genocide and to punish and extradite persons charged with genocide, the Court requires proof at a high level of certainty appropriate to the seriousness of the allegation."
