Civil Society & International Criminal Justice Mechanism Engagement: Roundtable Readout

On 13 November 2018, SJAC, Impunity Watch, and REDRESS convened an expert roundtable with the goal of exploring the findings of SJAC’s report, ‘International Criminal Tribunals and Civil Society: Impediments and Opportunities for Engagement,’ among relevant stakeholders and providing a space for further discussion. As the international community explores alternative avenues for criminal accountability, innovative approaches for civil society engagement are warranted. The conveners sought to challenge common preconceptions that impede engagement and generate new ideas for exploration. This readout provides a brief summary of the discussion as well as next steps.
