Life imprisonment for rape, war crimes, crimes against humanity and torture – on 30 May 2016 the Extraordinary African Chambers in Dakar made the conviction of former Chadian dictator Hissène Habré legal history. The judgment marked the successful culmination of more than 25 years of fighting for justice by survivors of Habré’s reign of terror.
 
Now ECCHR and Brot für die Welt, supported by the Bertha Foundation, are bringing Jacqueline Moudeina and Reed Brody, two of the architects of the landmark prosecution of Habré, to a conference of internationally renowned human rights lawyers to Berlin. Moudeina and Brody will speak of the uniqueness of their campaign which put the victims at the center, creating not just an irresistible political dynamic but a trial that showcased both the victims’ efforts and satisfied their expectations.
 
Together with human rights lawyers from Haiti, Pakistan, and Germany they will discuss best practices and lessons learned in long-term fights for accountability for serious human rights violations. The speakers all belong to the Bertha Justice Initiative network and practice transnational strategic litigation in international collaboration.
