International War Crimes Trials: Making A Difference?
November 6-7, 2003, University of Texas School of Law, Austin, Texas
Are global trials following human rights catastrophes making any difference on the ground? As the number of international criminal courts has grown in the last decade, scant attention has been given to the impact of these courts on key groups in the affected societies, victims, bystanders, and political leaders. This major conference seeks to discern the value of the tribunals and provide guidance on making them more effective. Panelists include former officials of UN tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda, individuals directly affected by atrocities, political scientists, a psychologist working with sexual violence victims, and an historian of such trials. The conference will bring together a diverse group of scholars and practitioners -- people who would not normally talk to each other even though they work on the same issue -- for frank, serious, and stimulating dialogue. Speakers include:

-- Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, former president, ICTY (keynote speaker)
-- Payam Akhavan, Former legal adviser, ICTY
-- Kelly Askin, Director, International Criminal Justice Institute
-- Vojin Dimitrievich, Director, Belgrade Centre for Human Rights;
-- Professor Lawrence Douglas, Amherst College
-- Professor Mark Drumbl, Washington and Lee School of Law
-- Aloys Habimana, LIPRODHOR
-- Professor Timothy Longman, Vassar College
-- Lepa Mladjenovic, Director, Autonomous Women's Center, Belgrade
-- Louise Mushikiwabo, Remembering Rwanda
-- Professor Steven Ratner, University of Texas School of Law
-- Darryl Robinson, Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and
International Trade
-- Marieke Wierda, International Center for Transitional Justice
