A public hearing on gross violations of women's human rights in conflict and the power of international instruments to address gender-based crimes.
The Global Women's Court of Accountability at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ) was an act of hearing the profound depth and cost of human rights abuses against women in conflict environments, as well as an examination of the global community's use of legal, moral and ethical resources to call for an accounting of abstention from these crimes against humanity.
Through personal testimonies of survivors and witnesses, analyses by expert human rights defenders and illumination of the international humanitarian agreements by a distinguished panel of judges and experts, this mock tribunal raised new voices for accountability and a more peaceful and just world.
