The Larger Agenda

Published: September 15, 2008, Author: JayTaber

Prosecuting War Criminals

The Real News Network presents the Justice Robert Jackson Conference on the Planning for Prosecution of High Level American War Criminals. The multi-part streaming series looking at prosecution, punishment, deterrence, and the challenges of achieving accountability raises issues of global import left largely unaddressed since the Nuremberg Trials.

By discussing such principles as human rights and related processes as openness in government, the panelists in this conference examine both the systematic violations of international humanitarian law by the United States, and perhaps more importantly, how this proactive undermining of universal human rights infrastructure by the world’s first superpower portends collapse of global society if left unprosecuted.

Chief George Manuel Memorial Indigenous Library

The library is dedicated to the memory of Secwepemc Chief George Manuel (1921-1989), to the nations of the Fourth World and to the elders and generations to come.
