The Tribunal invites the media to the launch of its publication, ‘Fifteen Years of Outreach at the ICTY’ on Thursday, 27 October 2016, from 16:00 to 18:30 in the Tribunal’s lobby.
The publication highlights how the Tribunal’s Outreach Programme — the first-ever to be established by an international criminal tribunal — developed over the course of the ICTY’s history. The event will be opened by the Tribunal’s President, Judge Carmel Agius, followed by remarks from Mr David Hudson, Senior Expert at the European Commission. A panel of experts will then discuss the work, achievements and challenges of the ICTY’s Outreach Programme, and a reception in the lobby will follow.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Mr Eldar Subašić (Head, ICTY Communications) and composed of Dr Marko Milanović (Associate Professor, University of Nottingham School of Law), Mr Mario Mažić (Director of Programmes, Youth Initiative for Human Rights, Croatia), Ms Rada Pejić-Sremac (Head, ICTY Outreach Programme) and Ms Lada Šoljan (Legal Officer, ICTY Office of the Prosecutor).
Fifteen Years of Outreach at the ICTY is part of a series of events entitled ‘ICTY Legacy Dialogues’ being held throughout 2016 and 2017. The ICTY Legacy Dialogues are aimed at promoting discussion of, and reflection on, the legacy of the ICTY as it approaches its closure, in order to inspire and enable others to build on the Tribunal’s achievements.
The Outreach Programme is generously supported by the European Union.
