Gathering evidence for future trials: the IIIM – Syria

As part of the joint Wayamo – AGJA conference, Catherine Marchi-Uhel, IIIM Head, joined a panel discussion to address the recent geopolitical, legal, and international changes occurring in the field of transitional justice, along with the challenges faced in evidence collection of mass atrocities, and the prosecution of international crimes. The panel included Nema Milaninia, Special Advisor to the U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice, Tabitha Ouya, Head of the Civil Rights Division, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Kenya, as well as high-level African experts on international criminal law and human rights, among others.

Later, and in conversation with Mark Kersten from the Wayamo Foundation, Catherine gave an insight into the establishment and work of the IIIM in supporting current justice processes and preparing for those that may emerge in the future.
