I. SVRI Listserv Member Request:

Wanted: examples where justice for women in and after deadly conflict needs to be made much more effective: Lesley Abdela will be giving a talk at the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies in London in the Spring (February 20/21 2009)  She will be the only speaker discussing War Crimes from the Gender perspective.  She has been 'blogging' away at this for the past 8 years since she was in Kosovo as the OSCE Deputy Director for Democracy immediately after the NATO campaign (see http://www.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/2001/feb/26/warcrimes).  Ahead of her talk, I'd appreciate views and examples from others where justice for women in and after deadly conflict needs much greater attention. Certainly security protection for women witnesses, coverage of their costs in getting to the Courts and waiting weeks and months to give evidence etc. is completely inadequate and defies the implementation of justice, resulting, effectively, in impunity for perpetrators of crimes against women. For more information please email Tim Symonds, Eyecatcher/Shevolution: tim.symonds at shevolution.com
