Women and girls must not be excluded from reparation in the Al Mahdi case

The International Criminal Justice Clinic at Melbourne Law School, run in partnership with Amnesty International, focuses on developing practical skills in gender analysis, trial monitoring, fair trial and victims’ rights advocacy.

One of the trials that we’ve been following this year is the Al Mahdi case, the first case in the International Criminal Court from the situation in Mali.

The recent reparations order in this case raises serious gender concerns, as student Adrienne Ringin argues this week on Amnesty International’s new human rights in international justice website.

As Adrienne’s post will be of interest to many Int Law Grrls readers, it’s my pleasure to cross-post it here.
