Two International Humanitarian Law Resources from Switzerland

The UK academic website Intute has spotted 2 very useful resources in international law:

  • Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts Project: this is an initiative of the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights that reports on the "application and implementation of international law in armed conflict. Through its global database, the Project aims ultimately to report on every State and disputed territory in the world, addressing both the legal norms that apply as well as the extent to which they are respected by the relevant actors."
  • Trial: Track Impunity Always: this is a Swiss-based organization whose goals include "the fight against impunity for the perpetrators accomplices and instigators of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and acts of torture. TRIAL will go to court and defend the interests of the victims of such acts before the Swiss courts and the International Criminal Court." The organization monitors international criminal cases, providing profiles of people under investigation or on trial, and notes on legal procedure.
