Tribunal 12 will take place on May 12th 2012 in Stockholm, Sweden. Tribunal 12 will focus on human rights violations and the systematic mistreatment of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Europe. The tribunal is inspired by the International War Crimes Tribunal formed by Bertrand Russell and Jean-Paul Sartre in 1967 and sets out to locate the moral, legal and political responsibilities as well as call for a change within the system.
Tribunal 12 is less than a year away and information is now available on their new webpage. Please visit this page for an updated programme etc.
Tribunal 12 will present four sessions focusing on: border control, the asylum process, undocumented migrants, and detention & deportation. Each session is introduced and led by a prosecutor who will present evidence that may consist of personal stories, expert witnesses, documentation, theories, art and drama. Artistic expressions will form an integral part of the tribunal and the sessions will have a dramaturgical framework. Members of the jury are internationally acclaimed persons active within the fields of philosophy, international law, literature, arts and activism.
