A webinar presented by the IBA War Crimes Committee
Afghanistan continues to be a place of violence and instability, including the recent bombing of schools. Although peace talks have been ongoing for years, the recent troop withdrawal by the US and NATO raises concerns about protections for the Afghan people. In May, it was announced that the Afghan government is not only cooperating with the International Criminal Court in its war crimes investigations, but that it is engaging in its own domestic efforts towards justice and accountability.
This dialogue will discuss the following points:
Sara Elizabeth Dill, Anethum Global, Gulf & Middle East Region; Arab Region Liaison Officer, IBA War Crimes Committee
H.E. Masood Azizi, Consul General of Afghanistan to United Arab Emirates, Major General, Afghanistan Armed Forces, Former Deputy Minister of Policy and Strategy in Ministry of Interior
Bonnie Carroll, President of TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) and 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. Former White House Liaison for Department of Veterans Affairs and Retired Major, US Air Force. Anchorage, Alaska, US
