Myanmar: ICJ holds discussions on justice and accountability with Rohingya interpretation

Myanmar victims of serious human rights violations, including Rohingya living in refugee camps in Bangladesh, have expressed their desire to be included in the various international justice processes underway around the world. In response, the ICJ is holding a series of accessible online discussions on justice and accountability.

The discussions include Rohingya interpretation, and are organized together with the Refugee Studies Unit of Centre for Peace and Justice (CPJ), BRAC University.

The discussions are livestreamed and stored on the CPJ’s Facebook page.

Commencing on 30 August 2021, the ICJ will hold seven sessions:

  • Accountability: international human rights law and standards

  • The problem of impunity in Myanmar

  • The International Criminal Court (ICC)

  • The Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar (IIMM)
  • The International Court of Justice (ICJ)
  • Universal jurisdiction
  • The Responsibility to Protect and the UN Security Council

There will be 16 sessions in total, with further topics facilitated by other organisations.

These events are being held with the support of the Asia Justice Coalition and are being conducted through the ICJ’s Global Accountability Initiative.
