Accountability for the Rohingya Genocide: the ICJ Case

November 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Rohingya genocide in Myanmar is one of the most pressing human rights challenges of our times. There have been various attempts at accountability, including the UN Fact-Finding Mission and Investigative Mechanism and the pending ICC investigation, although nothing has borne fruit yet.

However, at the United Nations General Assembly in September, The Gambia announced its intention to bring a case to the International Court of Justice under the 1948 Genocide Convention for the Rohingya genocide.

On Monday, 11 November, No Peace Without Justice is convening a meeting with the participation of Hon. Abubacarr Tambadou, Attorney-General and Minister of Justice of The Gambia and members of his legal team, some representatives of the Rohingya community, and others that have been most supportive of this initiative to provide an update on the ICJ initiative, also addressing the implications of State responsibility under the Genocide Convention for deterring further crimes and providing redress for the victims and the role for civil society and other stakeholders in this important accountability initiative.

The meeting is organised together with the Association pour la Lutte Contre l’Impunité et pour la Justice Transitionnelle, the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), the Global Center for the Responsibility to Protect, the Global Justice Center, Human Rights Watch, the International Bar Association Human Rights Initiative, Parliamentarians for Global Action and the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice.
Participation in the event is free, but registration is required!
