What We’re Watching: The International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women of Burma Report

On March 2, 2010 a landmark event, the International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women of Burma, was held in New York—one step towards accounting for atrocities commited under Burma’s military regime.

The tribunal, conducted by the Women’s League of Burma and the Nobel Women's Initiative listened to testimonies by 12 women of Burma and was judged by a panel that included Nobel Laureates Jody Williams and Shirin Ebadi.

The tribunal has just released their report from the proceedings. We are amazed by the courage of the women who testified. The report is a must read document for anyone seeking to understand the human rights situation in Burma.

The tribunal report bears witness to chilling stories of state sponsored violence. It is also a call to action, detailing the tribunal’s recommendations to Burma’s military regime, to the international community, and to civil society for moving forward.
