When we last spoke with Elise Keppler, she addressed what she sees as the major imbalance in the number of African defendants on trial in war crimes tribunals and global bodies, like the International Criminal Court (ICC). Keppler is associate director of the international justice program for Human Rights Watch and she’s back to update us on what’s happening in the trials of alleged perpetrators. She’ll also talk about the impunity of leaders like Sudan’s president, Omar al-Bashir. Though he’s under indictment by the ICC, al-Bashir has been welcomed in countries like China and South Africa.
