WEBINAR & LAUNCH of the report ‘Access to Justice in Europe for Victims of International Crimes’ – 26 October

by | Oct 26, 2020

MEP Saskia Bricmont, together with the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) and REDRESS invite you to an online webinar for the launch of the report: Breaking Down Barriers: Access to Justice in Europe for Victims of International Crimes.

Drawing on two years of consultations with 140 investigators, prosecutors, policy-makers and practitioners, the report examines the extent to which victims of serious international crimes—genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, torture and enforced disappearance—can benefit from EU standards on victims’ rights.

The webinar includes testimony from Syrian journalist and human rights defender Mansour Omari and discussion of key challenges and emerging best practices for implementing victims’ rights by practitioners and experts. Speakers will also include representatives from EU institutions and Civil Society Organisations.

The report will be launched during a webinar on Monday, 26 October at 2- 3:30pm Brussels/Paris/Berlin/The Hague time (UTC+2). Please register here.

The Report and Executive Summary can be accessed here.
