100 Eggers Hall
Establishing a web-driven TNGO: A conversation with Dr. David Crane, founder of Impunity Watch Dr. David Crane is a professor of practice at Syracuse University’s College of Law where teaches international criminal law, international humanitarian law, and national security law. From 2002-2005 he served as Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, an international war crimes tribunal. Professor Crane’s mandate was to prosecute those who bear the greatest responsibility for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and other serious violations of international human rights committed during the civil war in Sierra Leone during the 1990’s. Among those he indicted for those horrific crimes was the President of Liberia, Charles Taylor, the first sitting African head of state in history to be held accountable. In 2007 he founded Impunity Watch, a student run web-driven TNGO that operates as a law review, message board, and blog. Impunity Watch’s mission is to monitor and address horrific human rights abuses and possible situations of impunity. Its articles have been cited on the BBC, CNN and notable international blogs. We hope to see you there!
