La trilogie ‘Des Procès peu Ordinaires’ continue avec la projection du film Le Tribunal sur le Congo de Milo Rau (2017, 100 min).
En plus de 20 ans, la guerre du Congo a déjà fait plus de 6 millions de victimes. La population souffre de cet état d’impunité totale, les crimes de guerre n’ayant pas fait l’objet de poursuites judiciaires. Pour son film, Milo Rau parvient à réunir les victimes, les bourreaux, les témoins et les experts de la guerre du Congo et à instituer un tribunal du peuple d’exception du Congo de l’Est.
La projection sera suivie d'un échange avec:
Tram 15 - Stop Place du Cirque
Bus 1, 2, 3, 7, 10, 19, 35 - Stop Place du Cirque

For the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year, we are offering two new online short courses in transitional justice, designed for human rights practitioners and professionals working in post-conflict or post-authoritarian contexts who wish to acquire an extensive knowledge of international human rights law in transitions.

In this online event, some contributors to the new edition of Philip Alston and Frédéric Mégret’s book ‘The United Nations and Human Rights’ will examine the functions, procedures, and performance of the major UN organs dealing with human rights.
With less than a week remaining to what is likely to be the most contested US presidential election in decades, this webinar will discuss the precarious condition of electoral democracies in these challenging times.
This short course, which can be followed in Geneva or online, discusses the extent to which states may limit and/or derogate from their international human rights obligations in order to prevent and counter-terrorism and thus protect persons under their jurisdiction.
This online short course will examine the protection afforded by international human rights law in these contexts, with a specific focus on the right to peaceful assembly – which is at the heart of such movements –, and the right to life – which is often violated during such transitional moments.
This project intends to clarify the conditions of accountability for international crimes by providing a detailed assessment of the customary international law status of, in particular, the actus reus and mens rea elements of modes of liability: planning, instigating, conspiracy, direct and indirect perpetration, co-perpetration, the three forms of joint criminal enterprise, the doctrine of common purpose under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, command responsibility and aiding and abetting.
The Geneva Human Rights Platform collaborates with a series of actors to reflect on the implementation of international human rights norms at the local level and propose solutions to improve uptake of recommendations and decisions taken by Geneva-based human rights bodies at the local level.
