Crimes in Burma
This major report was commissioned by five top jurists: Judge Richard Goldstone (South Africa), Judge Patricia Wald (United States), Judge Pedro Nikken (Venezuela), Judge Ganzorig Gombosuren (Mongolia), and Sir Geoffrey Nice (United Kingdom). The report called on the UN Security Council to create a Commission of Inquiry to investigate crimes against humanity and war crimes in the country. Following elections in Burma, the Clinic continues to work with civil society organizations to advocate for accountability in the country and an end to human rights violations, especially in ethnic minority areas.
