This trilogy starts with the screening of the Trial of Ratko Mladić by Henry Singer et Rob Miller at the 17th International Film festival and Forum for Human Rights.
Twenty years ago, Europe discovered the shocking images of concentration camps and mass graves in the former Yugoslavia. In 2012, the international trial of the Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladić, accused of having led the siege of Sarajevo and being responsible for the 1995 Srebrenica genocide, begins in The Hague. Shot over five years, this film takes us behind the scenes of the trial.
The film will be followed by a debate.

This training course will explore the origin and evolution of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) and its functioning in Geneva and will focus on the nature of implementation of the UPR recommendations at the national level.
From its adoption to its content and implementation, this training course provides a comprehensive overview of the United Nations Declaration on the rights of peasants, as well as tools to protect and promote the rights of peasants, rural women, fisher, pastoralist and nomadic communities, as well as agricultural workers.
We are a partner of the Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project, housed at the University of Essex’s Human Rights Centre, which aims to map and analyse the human rights challenges and opportunities presented by the use of big data and associated technologies. It notably examines whether fundamental human rights concepts and approaches need to be updated and adapted to meet the new realities of the digital age.
This research project aims at addressing the challenges – legal and law enforcement – encountered during the management of assemblies and at filling the protection gaps by developing new standards and useful tools.
