The Khmer Rouge Tribunal – Assessing Recent Developments and Challenges Ahead

Montag, 19. Nov 2012, 14:00 Uhr bis 18:00 Uhr

Presentation of project results and panel discussion.

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (‘ECCC’ or ‘Khmer Rouge Tribunal’) have been set up to prosecute senior leaders and those most responsible for the crimes committed under the Khmer Rouge regime between 1975 and 1979.At this crucial time for the Khmer Rouge Tribunal, a scientific discussion of its challenges and achievements is particularly important. The aim of this roundtable is therefore to bring together researchers and practitioners to take stock of the progress achieved so-far and to discuss the problems lying ahead for the Court.
