The 21st century way to professionalise international justice investigations

Sunday, January 7, 2018 - 09:37

When there is an atrocity committed in a far-flung part of the world and experts are needed to investigate it, Justice Rapid Response (JRR) has the capacity to quickly assemble a team to collect and preserve evidence for use in future legal action against the perpetrator(s). In an interview with Justice Hub, JRR’s Executive Director Andras Vamos-Goldman told us “The 21st century works very differently. It requires a much faster reaction time because everything is faster in the 21st century so we are there to try to make the work of institutions including the work the ICC, the UN, and regional bodies faster. Not just faster but also more cost-effective.”

What Africans think about the current international justice system

Monday, December 18, 2017 - 12:57

Zimbabwean researcher Ruth Murambadoro firmly believes that justice is best applied when it has a local flavour. 

“I feel our [current] justice system fails us. It only attends to my physical wound and not the psychological and spiritual wound. So I consider the current justice systems to be failing to appease the spirit.”

Witnesses are the ICC's Achilles heel

New court room at the International Criminal Court
Friday, September 23, 2016 - 11:55

Without the testimony of witnesses, trials at the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the tribunals could not take place. However, the essential role of witnesses makes the courts dependent and vulnerable. JusticeHub looks at the phenomenon of witness interference which has been plaguing the global justice system.
