Go On! Transitional Justice for Darfur

(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)

A report entitled Toward Peace with Justice in Darfur: A Framework for Accountability will be launched this Wednesday, March 23, from 10 -11:30 a.m. at Tillar House, American Society of International Law, 2223 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. The report represents the culmination of the two-year Darfur Project partnership between the D.C.-based Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights and the California International Law Center at King Hall, University of California Davis, School of Law.
Envisioned by Dr. Mohammed Ahmed Abdallah Eisa (prior posts), Darfuri physician and recipient of the 2007 RFK Human Rights Award, and principally authored by yours truly, CILC Fellow Kathleen A. Doty, the report was prepared under the direction of RFK Human Rights Director Monika Kalra Varma, an IntLawGrrls guest/alumna, and CILC Director Diane Marie Amann, IntLawGrrl. Each of the four of us will speak at Wednesday's event.
The Toward Peace with Justice report provides a comprehensive analysis of the key transitional justice issues that will face the Darfuri people as they come to grips with past atrocities in Sudan. It is intended to be used as a tool to aid members of Darfuri civil society in determining which transitional justice mechanisms to implement.
Please join us for the launch. Space is limited, so please reserve your place to
