Large-scale Protection and Future Prospects for Human Rights in the Great Lake Region of East Africa

2011-9-26 (Mon) 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

The Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL) will hold a seminar, "Large-scale Protection and Future Prospects for Human Rights in the Great Lake Region of East Africa" on Monday, September 26.

Focusing on trials under way at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for serious violations of human-rights in the DRC and Uganda and similar cases at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), the situations of international criminal justice in the Great Lake Region in East Africa will be discussed in this seminar.

Serious human rights violations -- genocide, anti-humanitarian crimes, and war crimes -- have attracted the attention of the UN Security Council and human support organizations, but are not discussed very much in Japan. How is the international world addressing these issues? Is a solution possible?

GLOCOL has invited Mr. Adjovi who has handled real cases in ICTR as a legal officer and now teaches in Tanzania. He will speak about the current situation and the outlook for possible solutions.

Lecturer: Roland Adjovi, Professor, Arcadia University, Tanzania, former Senior Legal Officer, International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda
