It stays with you
‘It Stays With You’ is a documentary film about the impact on the local community of United Nations (UN) peacekeepers’ use of force in Cité Soleil, Haiti, during the period 2004-2007.
The film raises serious questions about the responsibilities of the UN with regard to non-targeted (but often foreseeable) deaths and injuries to civilians as a result of use of force by UN peacekeepers when carrying out mandated operations. The film is 50 minutes long, and will be followed by a panel discussion and questions from the audience.
A light cocktail will follow the event.

This research project, aims via the drafting of a practitioners’ guide on human rights and countering corruption, to clarify the conceptual relationship between human rights, good governance and anticorruption, demonstrate the negative impact of corruption on human rights and provide guidance and make practical recommendations for effectively using the UN human rights system in anti-corruption efforts.
Resulting from traditional legal research and informal interviews with experts, the project aims at examining how – if at all possible – IHL could be more systematically, appropriately and correctly dealt with by the human rights mechanisms emanating from the Charter of the United Nations, as well from universal and regional treaties.
