Lundin War Crimes Trial


Feb 14, 2024

Is the System Broken?

There are a number of international binding and non-binding conventions put in place to protect victims of war crimes, but to what extent is the international community living up to its obligations?

In this episode, we discuss how the legal system is failing victims and how to fix it. You will also get the latest updates from the trial.

With us to discuss this we have the lawyer Anders Sjögren, who, as a legal counsel, represents half of the plaintiffs in the Lundin war crimes case. Also Fanny Holm, whose research focuses on the legal framework for states to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, as well as the legal means available for providing reparations to victims of those crimes.

Participants:
Fanny Holm, researcher at Umeå University
Anders Sjögren, plaintiff’s counsel

Host:  
Halima Athumani
