Expert Meeting on PILPG’s Investigations Handbook

The Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG) and The Hague Institute for Global Justice co-organized this closed expert meeting on PILPG’s Investigations Handbook, which included, amongst others, lawyers, forensic specialists, investigators, end-users and civil society actors.

The purpose of the handbook is to provide practical assistance to those who encounter information or evidence of human rights violations when no professional investigative authority is immediately available or there is a danger that the information or evidence might become unavailable or deteriorate.

This event is part of the Accountability and Civic Trust project, a three-year initiative of the Institute’s Rule of Law program. For a relevant publication and related expert roundtable, see From Isolation to Interoperability: The Interaction of Monitoring, Reporting, and Fact-finding Missions and International Criminal Courts and Tribunals, a joint working paper prepared by The Hague Institute for Global Justice and the Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research (HPCR) of Harvard University’s School of Public Health, and an expert roundtable and public panel discussion on Evidence-Based Fact-Finding held on Wednesday 20 May 2015.
