E7: Is the System Broken?

There are a number of international binding and non binding conventions put in place to protect victims of war crimes – but to what extent is the international community living up to its obligations?

In this episode we discuss how the legal system is failing victims, and how to fix it. You will also get the latest updates from the trial.

With us to discuss we have one of the plaintiffs’ councel’s Anders Sjögren, as well as the researcher Fanny Holm, who has explored the legal space for states to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, and the corresponding legal space to provide victims of those crimes with reparations procedures.
