The Space of Human Rights in Countering International Crimes

How can human rights courts help mitigate international crimes?

In this week we will learn the following:

  • Why it is important to connect efforts in countering international crimes with the work of human rights international courts and monitoring bodies

  • How human rights courts ascertain the direct responsibility or the lack of due diligence of states in tackling cases of human rights violations that are likely to evolve into conflicts or widespread violence

  • Which jurisprudence of the regional human rights courts has been particularly authoritative in this field

  • How international humanitarian law and human rights law can help each other in tackling situations of victimization (by abuse, violence, etc.) of persons involved in conflicts
